Osteoporosis board

Hi there, Is anybody out there taking the Zoledronic Acid Injection (also known as ZOMETA) for Osteoporosis? My Dad has recently had his first injection, and he wants to know if anyone has had any strange side effects from it. The other week his knee became really swollen for no apparent reason. They first thought it was an infection but it turned out not to be. Any feedback would be welcome.
