How did you choose your treatment?

How did you choose your treatment?

I went against my endo's recommendation and choose what I thought to be the least invasive drug with the fewest side effects after I was unable to take Fosamax. I am currently taking Evista, Ca and Vit D but I am scheduled for my second bone scan. I am hoping to have made progress but my doctor is not hopeful. He wants me to choose between Forteo and Tymlos. He says I am not building bone and these are the best options for this issue. I don't want to take any of these drugs… read more

I just had my second bone density and was advised two sites are improved, but my left forearm worsened considerably. Is that normal?

I just had my second bone density and was advised two sites are improved, but my left forearm worsened considerably. Is that normal?

I have seen an arthritis/osteoporosis specialist regarding my diagnosis. Because I have osteoarthritis also, affecting my knees, left elbow, and especially my hands, the doctors primary focus was decreasing inflammation so calcium is not pulled from my bones to combat this. I have followed their directions as good as I can as far as taking the supplements they suggest (fish oil,… read more

How can I get off Prolia SAFELY?

How can I get off Prolia SAFELY?

I had been on Prolia about 6 years. It wasn't helping much but at least I wasn't getting worse.
Then because of a change in medical personnel at the center where I got it, there was a brief delay about 4 weeks or so) in getting my shot.

As a result I suffered three vertebral fractures and have… read more
