Has ANYONE been happy on Prolia??

Has ANYONE been happy on Prolia??

I'm a 72 yr old white female who had last dexascan 2 yrs ago. Left hip T score T-2.6. I'm terrified to have dexascan now as I'm afraid it's much worse. Just hoping to get some Prolia reviews that are void of horrible side effects.

Unusual problem at night

Unusual problem at night
