I have been on a pamidrinate drip for the last 2 years for my bone cancer. Also on arimadex. My veins had become so bad Nurses could not even find them, half the time. My Oncologist was about to book me in for a Port. But wait she said, all the new patients are on something new.So  now am on Denosumab, which is only an injection. My visit to the Chemo Day Centre now has gone from the 2 hour drip to about 10 minutes.. Great... Yee Haa

Hi

I was diagnosed with secondary breast cancer one year ago and and at present I am being treated with Femara. Panadol Osteo, Vitamin D and every month an infusion of Zometa. It would be nice to hear from people who are being treated likewise.

I am fortunate that I do not have hardly any side effects.

I often wonder how long this treatment will continue and to have someone to share my concerns good or bad.
