Hello I'm from Indonesia. Calciphylaxis (calcification in the blood vessel) is a very rare and fatal desease in here. My mother is 74 years old, and she's diabetic and already takes HD 3x a week. The doctors said that her heart function is only 38% left. Now she has ulcers on both legs and beginning to spread. She also has calciphylaxis. What I want to know is what will happened if I give her Bisphosphonate / Pamidronate 30mg/10ml injections to treat the calciphylaxis according to her conditions earlier. What's the side effects? Please any informations will be very helpful to us.
Thank you.
