This is my blog on Zometa

I decided to try something new today and blog while I’m getting treatment.  Not that easy, considering I have to use my left hand because my right one is a little occupied.  I’m getting my twice a year infusion of Zometa,  which helps fight the bone loss I get from my post-cancer meds.  It also reduces the chances of a recurrence.  So, here I sit, feet up in a recliner,  trying to eke out a few sentences.

It’s always bittersweet returning to my Oncologist’s office and sitting in the chemo room.  It’s a room that’s full of memories for me – good and bad.  Inevitably, I run into someone I know from my time of chemotherapy, and it’s  good to see them and catch up.  I meet new people too, at the beginnings of their treatment and with a mixture of hope and sadness in their eyes.  I try to talk with them and tell them they’re in good hands and to have faith.  That’s one of the parts I like – getting to talk to the women and families in the chemo room.

One of the bitter parts of  today was finding out that my Doctor had lost her father – but the sweetest part about today was my partner showing up unexpectedly to sit with me and hold my hand during treatment.

 

So, now my infusion is done.

And I leave wearing my red badge of courage.

    I can so relate to this post. I had six Zometa treatments and each time had the emotions you also experience. I was feeling so very grateful at the end of each treatment!
