    I am a 75 year old male, diagnosed with ‘light chain’ asymptomatic myeloma 3 years ago. After scans, X-rays and a bone marrow biopsy (which indicated a high risk of progression to MM) the Haematologist prescribed Zometa 4mg infused every 4 weeks. Apart from the value of light chains, all other blood counts are just within range and are stable. I have experienced no side effects from having Zometa but have had to pause that treatment to have the root canal of a molar re-filled. Has anyone else experience of Zometa or evidence that it delays the onset of multiple myeloma?
