Back Pain
A MyMyelomaTeam Member asked a question 💭

I had my SCT July 14, 2022 and thanks be to God I’m in remission. I started my maintenance chemo and Zometa on November 28. I had 9 compression fractures repaired with kyphoplasty. I’m now having more back pain, especially when standing and sitting. I went to see my spine doctor yesterday. He recommended another MRI. I hope it’s not another compression fracture. I was thinking could it be a side effect of the Zometa? Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Thank you, my shipmates.

A MyMyelomaTeam Member

Yes I have back pain. I haven't had any back procedures. Praise God I am also in remission and looking forward to a cure.
