I just came across a discussion of 5 months ago with Bolly and Mousehold. Suffice it to say I had my first Zolendronic Acid annual injection last Tuesday (the day of Junior doc's strike). I was allergic to the tablets.
This was scheduled for Nov last year but was not allowed it because of HCV treatment.
A canula was put in my arm and the injection came on a drip. It took about 15 mins. Told to wait a few mins then allowed to go. That was so easy! I was given leaflet showing possible side effects, the nurse mentioned flu like symptoms. I breezed out of the Day Unit Went home totally happy because flu like symptoms, I can deal with!
Woken suddenly at exactly 4.00 am next morning with vomiting and diahorhea. Used to d and v because of liver problems but this was like nothing I experienced. I thought I was going to die.
I could not get through to hospital because of strike. I have got better but have been left with swollen tummy. I wonder why. I did have hernia op last year (2 hernias) after liver resection. Do you think it has returned or could it be ascites?
