Prolia treatment for osteoporosis

Had you been on any other osteoporosis therapies prior to prolia? If this is your first therapy, I think that one year is too soon too see a consistent improvement. My doctor waited 2-2/2 years to do a DEXA after putting me on prolia. I was diagnosed with severe osteoporosis at the age of 40 and it took 18 years for me to get from osteoporosis to osteopenia. I need to find the copy of my last DEXA to see what my scores were. Treating osteoporosis rarely results in a quick steFy improvement in bone density.

I was on Fosamax for years, and have taken Evista for 20-25 years. While Evista perhaps has not been effective in stopping bone loss, it was recommended that I continue by my oncologist, as I am a breast cancer survivor.

@ritafarmer How long you have been with Prolia? Did your see any noticeable improvement in bone density in your spine and hips? is prolia effective in reducing hip fracture?
