@cubbysgirl thanks for the info. I should have read this before I asked you this same question earlier.

@cubbysgirl I know exactly how you feel. I'm 65 years old and was advised to get the Prolia injection. My doc said "it's the best we have", and my other doctor couldn't understand why I was worried about side affects. I, like you had my appointment scheduled, but after much research, my gut just told me to stay away from that shot. I'm happy I did, I just try to eat healthy, exercise and work on my balance. Good luck with your decision.
I’ve chosen not to go on Prolia like many of the rest of you. After reading all the side affects and what people
Have said on here it sounds horrible. I have been going to a physical therapist who has been a wealth of information. So much more than any of my doctors. So along with my PT’s expertise and watching my diet I have chosen to tackle this challenge with what my gut tells me. Best of luck to all of you!
Thank you Colleen. I appreciate the information. Yes we are trying to focus on the 50 percent chance that it won’t spread. I’m trying to encourage my husband and help him to eat healthy and exercise. He’s not one that has ever done either so it’s quite and challenge for me and frustrating. My husband is 67 years old. Thanks again
My husband had his full body scan, blood work and oncologist appointment today. We are happy to report that at this point the cancer has not metastasized. The doctor did say that if it does metastasize to the liver that it is automatically stage 4 cancer,. Which we don't understand why that is so. He did say that the chance of the cancer metastasizing is 50%. We also asked if there was anything my husband could do to up his chances of his cancer not spreading and he said no…not even diet or exercise would do anything to help prevent this. Has anyone heard of anything we can do to help stop the chance of this metastasizing? Thanks so much.
