Unusual problem at night

My left night has started giving me a lot of trouble recently. After having an X-ray I was told there is ‘significant arthritic damage ‘ to my knee.

Has ANYONE been happy on Prolia??

Has ANYONE been happy on Prolia??

I'm a 72 yr old white female who had last dexascan 2 yrs ago. Left hip T score T-2.6. I'm terrified to have dexascan now as I'm afraid it's much worse. Just hoping to get some Prolia reviews that are void of horrible side effects.
