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

I take low dose estrogen and no Osteo meds as i hate the side effects. So i exercise and eat healthy and take lots of vitamins. So far my scores are staying at -3.0 and im ok with that as im still active and dont have any pain.

I take Prolia, but my Gynecologist really felt I'd be safe with taking an HRT called Duavee. She said that the fact that I have hip scores of -3.6 and -3.7 makes me a very special case. She said I could even take a half pill per day if I was worried, and it would still be worth the help. I have not had cancer to this date so I am going to take it.
