I was planning a wonderful relaxing kayak trip down the Chattahoochee River yesterday. The oncologist's office called as we were getting ready to go. After covering myself with suntan lotion and bug spray, I had to shorten the trip and had to hoof it to the oncologist's office yesterday afternoon to get an infusion of Zometa. Seems my calcium level hit 12.0 and that means no monkeying around. So I was well hydrated and decalcified all in one 1 1/2 hour drip late in the afternoon. I had no side effects and I'm going back on Wednesday for another lab workup to see if it lowered my calcium.
What is your experience with this? Does it work quickly?
BTW. I called Nashville and made sure this wouldn't disqualify me from the trial.
Hugs to all!
PS I did get in about an hour and a half of bliss. A gorgeous day!!!!!
