Radiation causing lung damage

I say hold off on reconstruction at this time. Operations are very hard on the body and reconstruction is just one more operation. I don’t know where you live, but if I were you, I would make an appointment with a holistic chiropractor immediately. I was on Metrazol for five years. I knew it could cause osteoporosis. What I did not know was that Lyrica and the statins I was on could also cause osteoporosis. So now I have osteoporosis and I refuse to take Prolia. I went to see a holistic chiropractor and told him I wanted to get off Lyrica immediately, even though in the past, it made my peripheral neuropathy symptoms come back within five days. he put me on a big vitamin complex and a liquid glutathione. I haven’t had symptoms for seven months and I’m feeling great. He is addressing my osteoporosis by natural means, and I am hoping they too will work. Remember, your body will tell you when somethings wrong, and if somethings working . Listen to your body and read everything you can on your issues. Don’t let doctors make all your decisions for you. You must be an equal

Sorry, Siri has her limitations. It was a letrozole. I was on for breast cancer. And my doctor prescribed a B vitamin complex.

When I want to know something, I seek out an expert - one with serious credentials including research capability. I would be wary of marketing aspects of "holistic chiropractor".
Regarding Prolia, I have been on it for 7 years - advised by an Endocrinologist at the time since I was reluctant.
The institution that did my recent bone density test suggested I consider (after due clinical correlation) changing to Fosamax to lock in results. I asked my Primary Care Physician what he thought, and he replied that he did not have the expert knowledge to advise me and said I should see an Endocrinologist. I had a consult with a Mayo Endocrinologist, and he recommended I continue on Prolia for another 5 years (Mayo has women on Prolia for 12 years, they see a lot of women with breast cancer and Prolia seems to have an anti-bone tumor property). I have lung cancer, so that was really a good piece of information for me. I am grateful to my primary care doctor to send me where I would get the greatest expertise.
