  • i am on a clinical trial, randomized, either zometa or xgeva. I believe that i receive xgeva, because prior to the start of the study, i had an infusion of zometa and had strong flu-like symptoms for 3 days. After starting the study, I have had no side effects for 8 months. after the last treatment, however, I experienced chills, low fever, extreme fatigue for 2 days. I wonder if i received zometa in error, or if chills etc. are symptoms for xgeva too.
