Hi everyone and Happy Holidays :)
I was diagnosed with stage 3 IDC in December 05 and went through chemo (AC/T), bilateral mastectomies, and radiation. Because it was ER positive and had positive lymph nodes, I was put on Tamoxifen until October of this year when two "hot spots" showed up on multiple scans.
My oncologist believes these to be bone mets, but they are not in places that can be biopsied right now. I am on Femara and Zometa.
My first question is....does anyone else have pain and muscle spasms after their first Zometa treatment? I was told the side effects would stop, but they haven't.
Second question......my potassium level keeps bottoming out when they do labs? I take multivitamins and extra potassium every day as it is.....does anyone else have this or know what it could be?
Thank you very much for your time and answers and again, Happy Holidays :)
