EXPERIENCE WITH PROLIA

EXPERIENCE WITH PROLIA

I was doagnosed with advance Osteoporosis in September last year. In October I had my first Prolia injection. Two months later I was hospitalised with severe Diverticulatis. Bad Prolia reviews started to invade my life. The fear took me to see an Endocronologist. She advised I stay on Prolia and in December review my results,
. I am scared to go for my second injection. Has anyone here experinced Prolia as a treatment?

Hi Patricia...I also have advanced OP. and the only exercise my doctor recommended was something she called "the penguin".
Lie flat on your back on top of a yoga mat and using nothing BUT your obliques, pull up on either side of your body ..(while remaining flat on your back) *In other words, imitate how a penguin moves as it walks.. sounds stupid, I know; but it helps develop your core muscles.
She also suggested walking around my yard a few times each day, but it kills me to do much of that.
I've lost somewhere between 60-70 lbs. since my diagnosis because it was very hard on my skeleton to carry around that much additional weight.

Yes, I just had my fourth Prolia injection. Since being on Prolia, I find myself dealing with chronic and severe constipation. I use senokot now on a regular basis. I cant prove it is the Prolia. I have had an irritable bowel forever as well as celiac disease. I suspect that the Prolia has made matters worse. Am I discontinuing the Prolia? Not yet. I have had definite improvement in both the hip (and most importantly the neck of the hip) and the spine. So, I will keep evaluating the Prolia every six months . Right now my fear of fracturing outweighs my unhappiness with my g.i. issues.

I certainly agree with your statement SueQ. I was diagnosed with osteoporosis at 51. There are NO doctors that specialize in osteoporosis in my state. I’ve been to my Internal Med, gynecologist and endocrinologist and no one can seem to answer my questions about how exactly the meds work. Well that’s because I don’t think they do work. I think I’d get better results by seeing a physical therapist or orthopedic doctor to get information on bone strengthening exercises. I’m trying to manage my osteoporosis by vitamins, exercise and food. I feel like that’s a much safer route than being put on all these nasty meds.
