I anyone getting Prolia injections and what is your experience.
Has anyone had problems with jawbone, loose teeth, or cancer from taking prolia?
I HAVE BEEN ON PROLIA FOR 2 1/2 YEARS. I had aches only one time and my dexa has improved. I am glad of it have had 15 surgeries on left leg. it has been over a span of 12 years with last 2 years ago. right knee needs replaced bone on bone and pain almost consistently BUT getting gei shots in it . I can drive but not chancing losing that little independence. Listen to your gut feeling about it. HAPPY NEW YEARS and health in 2020.
Tried 1 injection. I had all the side effects; aches in my joints, Bones, jaws, teeth and muscles; also had diarrhea, and other gastro problems. The effects lasted for 4 months until almost time to have another shot. I decided against continuing the injections.
I have been on Prolia injection - twice a year - for 6 years or more. At my last scan my bone density was much improved so the treatment is obviously working. I think I do have some side effects but nothing I can't cope with as long as the drug is strengthening my bones. I have noticed new aches & pains for the last 3 years or so but hey ... at nearly 74 I think well maybe I would have got the aches & pains anyway!! I believe this drug can have a bit of an effect on one's immune system & I do think that could be true - superficial injuries seem to take for ever to heal up & I (think!) I've noticed maybe having a slight increase in tummy upsets but again that could possibly be down to age. To sum up I'm plodding on with it because I understand that you cannot suddenly just stop having the Prolia as reversal could happen at a pace but my consultant says that there are other things I can have. I'm not 100% happy about being on this drug but then I think of what condition I would be in without it. Good luck.xx
I understand what you are saying Maureen. I am sure that as time goes by they will find things wrong with Prolia. But it seems to be working for people here so I will continue and hope for the best.
