I had been taking Forteo injections for two years and did have an increase in my T-score, especially the hip area. Then once off for a few months for some dental work before starting Prolia, I fell and broke my hip. Now I experience anxiety, experience thigh pain when I am up for an extended period of time.
Has anyone else ever had a fracture while on treatment?
My dentist said if you need an extraction while on a biphosphonate he sends you to a dental surgeon rather than doing it himself. He said there's a blood test dentist can do before attempting extraction himself.
I shattered my left hand seven years ago, but I didn't have a rheumatologist at the time. My gp had me on something that wasn't effective and caused me to go from -2 to -3.6. I have been on prolia for 4 1/2 years. I broke my left arm last year, slipped on the ice. I have had pain in my left arm and hand ever since. I was told I didn't heal properly and probably won't heal properly due to the bone loss.
The pain in manageable most of the time, but my hand and arm can get very painful.
I hope this was helpful
I am very sorry to learn of your hip fracture. Having broken both femurs, 4 years apart, I was referred to my Endroconogolist who put me on Prolia in 2007-2009. The only problem I am experiencing now is constant finger nail breakage. Be careful out there.
Had a broken femur in Sept. 2018. Had been on Prolia for several years. Surgeon said he thought it was atypical break from bone-building drugs. He cautioned using them for long period of time. Now I see if one goes off Prolia, they need to immediately go on some other bone-building medication. At a loss as to what to do next, since I did not take the injection that was due first of Dec.
