Feb 8, 2018 · anyone have experience with zoledonic acid infusion for osteopenia? in Breast Cancer

I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH OSTEOPOROSIS AT AGE 83 LAST SUMMER AND RECEIVED THE INITIAL RECLAST (ZOLEDRONIC ACID INFUSION ). WITHIN 24 HOURS I EXPERIENCED CHILLS, FEVER, COUGHING, FATIGUE AND PAIN IN HIPS, LOW BACK, RIGHT AND LEFT SIDES OF MY ABDOMEN, SHOULDERS, NECK AND UPPER ARMS. THIS SYMPTOMS DISSIPATED AFTER ABOUT TWO WEEKS. AS A RESULT, MY ENDOCRINOLOGIST IS CONSIDERING A DIFFERENT TREATMENT FOR ME RATHER THAN HAVING THE SECOND RECLAST INFUSION. NOT EVERYONE HAS SUCH AN UNPLEASANT EXPERIENCE AS MINE, SO DO NOT LET THIS DISCOURAGE YOU. BEST ADVICE IS TO KNOW ALL THE FACTS AND DISCUSS THIS WITH YOUR DOCTOR. GOD BLESS YOU WITH GOOD MEDICAL CARE AND GOOD HEALTH.
