I had Zometa a few years ago and went to work immediately after.No proplems.
Has anyone had bone problems with their jaw after taking Xgeva? If so how soon did it happen? I am only on my third treatment and have a tingling sensation in my upper left jaw. Is there an alternative drug that doesn't carry the same risks?
