Today I saw my oncologist to get my six monthly Zometa treatment.
Zometa is a kind of drug for people with breast cancer which should help to prevent getting metastases in your bones.
Today my doctor told me that there is a study (he heard about it on big cancer congress) that this is probably not working as a prevention. It is working when you have metastases in your bones but it's doesn't help you to prevent getting them.

He said that I shouldn't get the treatment anymore but it's my decision. So what should I do ?? Take the Zometa and live with the side effects or quiting the treatment because it's not working ?!
