I'm John, age 76 and diagnosed 4 years ago with prostate cancer that is now in the bones. My doctor put me on Hormone treatments and have had radiation. Now he suggested doing a monthly injection of Zometa. Does anyone have experience with this and what side effects would I expect to have? Thanks, J

John: My Father had monthly injections of Zometa - for mets to the bones - and they seemed to work for him really well. He only had 4 injections -but it did help decrease bone pain, and slow down the spread to other areas. He did not have any "real" side effects from the Zometa - although you need to drink lots of fluid for 48 hours afterwards - cause it can affect the kidney functions (but they will also do blood tests to check monitor your functions as well). With him for some reason exactly 3 weeks after the IV injection - he just had a REALLY REALLY BAD day - but then he would perk back up. When he started Zometa his PSA level was 2250 - his prostate cancer was hormone refractory after 10 years of taking hormone treatments - in January his level was 3725 - he stopped all treatment and passed away in June. If his cancer had NOT become hormone refractory - he could have lived quite a long time with that & the bone cancer. His oncologist said he's never seen a level quite that high - Good luck with the Zometa - I think it is a good drug - its not a cure - but it HELPS A LOT!!! Janet
