Prolia treatment for osteoporosis

Good afternoon, I don't know if I can give you advice. How can I make a difference? I can tell you I went through months of worrying and researching about all post Tymlos options. I had uncontrollable side effects from bisphosphonates so my options were limited. This report by Mayo Clinic was the best I could find as a starter.

With more than a little apprehension, I accepted Prolia. My PCP and the technician giving the injection both told me they had not seen any negative reactions. I trust my PCP totally. Well, it has been two weeks and I have not had any sensitivity or reactions to the first dose. I am relieved and ready to pursue this choice for osteoporosis protection.

Please protect yourself…….all I have to do to motivate myself is to remember how my beautiful mother died. It was from a fall as she reached out to greet me with a hug. The result was a broken hip. She was not even aware of osteoporosis and neither was I.

She never walked again and soon stopped eating and communicating.

Please protect yourself. We are all living longer these days and need our bones to be the best they can be as we age.

May you be free of suffering and the causes of suffering.
Chris

Hi Chris, there are so many wonderful people here to help others. I truly appreciate you and many others who try to help me. First of all, May I ask why a broken hip results in your mother's death? Couldn't they help to replace that hip? How old was she? I am so sorry about your mother's passing I am sure you and her were very close. It is hard to lose someone you love.
About Prolia, you had it 2 weeks ago so side effects can still come. One of my friends did not get sick with infection is about 2-3 months later. If you check online some people did not get sick until the second or third shot. What worries me is that Prolia will make bone healing slower. So if later on we have fractures then it is going to be hard to heal.
Chris, you are extremely nice to help me. It is just so hard for me to make a decision about Prolia. One of the 2 Endo doctors I went to told me that he has treated over 1000 patients and NONE had problems. The other endo told me some people did drop out. I feel doomed because my osteo is severe and I feel if I do it or not to do it there are consequences. I just don't know what to do next.
