Triple negative breast cancer using Prolia

Posted by @paulyd1 @paulyd1, Apr 25 1:34pm

I am triple negative breast cancer with bilat. mastectomies and bilat ovaries removed. I have been on Prolia for almost 12 years but my new insurance denied Prolia as I wasnt on a antihormone medication (like letrozole or anastrozole) to prevent hormone + breast cancer which FDA states is required. I cannot seem to work around it at this time. I am postmenopausal in my 70's so I really do not have a high risk for hormone + breast cancer at anytime and dont need the drug to prevent it. Has anyone else had this issue and if yes, how were you able to resume Prolia?

This does sound like a wrong box was checked. Any update, @paulyd1?

Yes, it was the wrong box by the office staff and I am scheduling for my Prolia. Since other replies show different treatments, I am going to keep my endocrinologist evaluation next month to see if I should change from Prolia. When I get on medicare in the near future, I am sure I'll have to do something affordable! Thanks for all the feedback.
