Hi, just a quick query. Is it usual to be prescribed calcium supplements with Zometa? I took it when receiving preventative Zometa after primary diagnosis but have now been prescribed it with my most recent infusion subsequent to secondary diagnosis. I was having a wee google just to find out why it was taken with Zometa and found an article that said it shouldn’t be taken as could encourage damaging bone activity, HOWEVER, the article (scientific paper) was published in 2004 so it may no longer be accurate. Just wondering if those on here with bone secondaries are taking adcal along with infusion. I’m sure my onc is on top of things but I’m kinda in between primary and secondary treatments as I await bone biopsy to identify which of my primaries triggered the secondaries. Thanks in advance.
