Has Anyone Switched From Prolia To Fosamax?

Has Anyone Switched From Prolia To Fosamax?

I started on Prolia 5 1/2 yrs ago. My new Dr. told me that it was not the first line of treatment so wanted to put me on fosamax. Was wondering if anyone had any experience with this?

Do You Have To Take Unsafe "bone-building" Drugs To Stop Osteoporosis From Getting Worse?

Do You Have To Take Unsafe "bone-building" Drugs To Stop Osteoporosis From Getting Worse?

I have had osteopenia for a few years, but for about a year now, I have to take hydrocortisone daily for adrenal insufficiency. My last dexa scan 2 months ago shows I now have osteoporosis. I take 5000 units of D3, k2, boron, and magnesium daily. I dont have a rheumatologist anymore because I fired her about a year or so ago. She wasn't helping at all. What else can I do?

Having to check my passwords all the time because of being asked to log in is getting to be a hard work. Won't one time logging in is enough unless I log out? #NoOffensemeant

Has Anyone Had Thumb Surgery?

Has Anyone Had Thumb Surgery?

I have a bad thumb on my right hand and it is so painful that I can not use it. I have had shots of corticosteroids with no relief. They say surgery is the only option but I live alone and have a dog to look after and no family to help out and can not efford 24 hr care as I am still paying off agency bill from fall that required 2 surgeries on my knee.
