I have been on zometa for 18 months now--receiving it once a month IV. My BUN is creeping up slowly (now 24) and my GFR is going down slowly (now 59-60). Has anyone else had this problem? I see my onc in a couple of weeks and will ask him when I should worry about it?? And what, besides hydrating, I can do (if anything).

    I recieve zometa twice a year, I had one infusion and the checked my BUN and CR prior to the infusion. I am not sure what they do if your renal function tests are altered. I know hydration helps the BUN but not sure extra fluid is good for the kidneys, if other labs are off.
