Has Anyone Taken Prolia? If So Did You Experience Any Side Affects?

A MyOsteoTeam Member said:

Thank you. My levels are always checked now before I have the prolia injection, but it is good to be aware that you can't have prolia if your calcium levels are too low.

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 because of all the… read more

Does it work? Has anyone ever heard of this....that calcium pills are just ground up rock? Can we digest this? Will this clog my arteries?

Fortes Injections

Fortes Injections

My Endocrinologist wants me to take Forteo for 2 years by injection everyday as a bone builder. I am eligible through the Government as I had A femoral fracture due to the medication I was taking. My Doctor has to make application on my behalf to put me on the program. Side effects dizziness, leg cramps, soreness due to the injections. I would like your input on this program. Thank you.

What Form Of Exercise Can I Take

What Form Of Exercise Can I Take

I'm afraid of doing anything except walking and swimming for fear of hurting myself, but I get bored with these. My osteoporosis is mild in my spine and moderate in my hips. I've had two crush fractures. My back can be extremely painful. I've tried Pilates and yoga, but some of the excersises really hurt my upper back, so I end up not doing anything! I used to love cycling, but I've lost all my confidence and can't balance anymore as I'm so scared of falling off.

A MyOsteoTeam Member said:

I purchased a good pair of boots for walking and have returned to my fitness class ......trying to use more weights(5 lb ) so we will see .....some days are better than others
