I am currently a survivor of Stage 4 colon cancer
with 8/20 lymphnodes positive since Aug. 2003.
I have been ill since the surgery. I am 51 yrs old. Since the surgery I have had chemo, radiation
to the pelvic area, I am on fragmin injections for
blood clots and have developed a new disease called myloid dyplastic syndrome. Currently I have
just gotten out of the hopsital with severe compression fractures of the spine. I am incapacitated in a brace and had kypoplasty surgery. The biopsy did not show multiple myleoma but severe osteoporosis. My oncoligist is staring zometa on thursday to help with the fractures.
That drug has many many side effects. I was wondering if anybody is currently receiving zometa. It is used for pt's with multiple myeloma.
Your support is needed. Fran
