I was on Forteo for 15 months and my spine went from -2.9 to -3.0. My Endocronoglist and I agreed that I was going in the wrong direction. I am 61 and have a rare hormone disease called Kallman's Syndrome. We thought we would try Bonvia, Supplements, and a low dose of HRT. I take Climara Pro patch but only a half a patch a week. The regular does is 1 patch a week so it's a very low dose. I know that there are risks associated with HRT treatment for women my age but I feel that saving my bones… read more
What doctor is a osteoporosis specialist?
I had a hysterectomy when I was 24, both ovaries removed and was on HRT for 17 years. Because there is breast cancer on both sides of my family I decided to go off. I am 59 nad have no regrets about going off.
I have been on prolia since 2014 and no side effects - sore back for a few days after but otherwise I feel really good, most of the time.
My bone scan when I started prolia was -3.6 and I am now -3.1
To the women you said they took/take HRT for osteoporosis did you also take progesterone to balance the estrogen?
After two years of HRT (estradiol patch and natural progesterone) I go for a bone density scan next week. I'll let you guys know if it helped. I've also been reading about heart disease and HRT but the research on natural hormones are limited but positive.\
Hi 👋 I tried Forteo when I was in Montana about a year ago.. Started on a Friday (of course) and got bad side effects.... I left 3 or 4 messages for the supposedly bone specialist.. She never got back to me in my panic.
So I just quit doing the shots after 4 days, took the medicine and needles back to the pharmacy and never went back to that doctor! I have had one Prolia shot with no noticeable side effects, supposed to get my second one in May... We will see if they postpone it due to Covid 19 🤦🏼♀️
Anyway my Sister has had three shots and got another scan and her scores were better! 💜
My lower spine is -3.9 and my hips are -2.8 & -2.5.
Good luck with Prolia..... I will be posting my score when I get another scan 😎
Happy Easter 🐇🐣🐰
