Jenna, when looking up zometa and if I am going to drop it I found your blog..Amazing. I am a stage IV 41 yr old mother of 3 (almost 15 year old daughter, 12 yr old boy,4 yr old boy), happily married. I was dx'd with stage IV after I had already gone through chemo and radiation, chose to do the ovarian removal...tomoxifin was HORRIBLE! I did the removal and went on femera and zometa...Oh my! I had a tram done (due to scar tissue in the radiated side of the reconstruction)...So I took a few months off of the zometa with docs approval. I felt so good. I did start having pain that made me think I should get back on the zometa...first treatment and almost 4 days down! UGH! I have to schedule my life around being able to be down with 3 very active children and a husband that can't change jobs because of insurance and he works afternoons. My doc is as most of them famous for saying "I don't know" especially to young survivors like me.. By the way, are you aware of Wild Yam Cream (teehee)
You can find me on twitter or I'd love to chat sometime!

Thanks for sharing your story Cherry Dee. Sorry it took a bit to post. It is a wild ride and every day is it very own, and sometimes that is easy to digest and others not so much. I am kind of "cleaning house" and reconfiguring how/what I write about here. So keep checking back.

I am glad you have those adorable kids around, it helps motivate. But it too can be the challenge.

Take care!
