Pamidronate infusions

Hi

I start Pamidronate infusions in a fortnight, can anyone give me any advice and tips, I understand I need to be hydrated, I'm going for a dental check up next week, and luckily my teeth are all in good health. My calcium levels and vitamin D has been checked and is at a good level, and I will be eating a calcium rich diet and continuing with my vit d, vit mk7 and boron supplements and magnesium.

I've read about feeling fluey and tired afterwards..

Any experiences or tips would be great, I'm not sure how long it will take, and i've got someone to pick me up afterwards

Many thanks

  • Hi  and a very warm welcome to the online community

    I don't have any experience with pamidronate infusions but noticed that your post hadn't had any replies yet.

    The online community is divided up into different support groups so if you could tell me what type of cancer you are being treated for I could provide a direct link to that group for you where you'll connect directly with others having this type of treatment. Alternatively you could look through this list and join the group appropriate to you.

    When you feel ready, it would be great if you could pop something about your diagnosis and treatment into your profile as it really helps others when replying to you and also when looking for someone on a similar pathway. It also means that you don't have to keep repeating yourself. To do this click on your username and then select 'Profile'. You can amend it at any time and if you're not sure what to write you can take a look at mine by clicking on my username.

    If you have any difficulty navigating the community just drop me a reply and I'll be pleased to help
