Wondering the experiences others have had using Prolia injections.

Wondering the experiences others have had using Prolia injections.

I have recently had a mysterious pelvic hip fracture so my dr has recommended Prolia injections. Just seeking some info on your experience with this treatment. Did it increase bone density? Did you experience side effects? Do you think it is an effective treatment? Would really appreciate your comments! Thanks!
