My husband uses 5%, on compression fractures, we have had to purchase 4% while traveling and when he has run out due to to mail Rx issues. He does not notice a difference. I think you should be able to appeal to the insurance company, given the safety of lidocaine over opiates in the current climate. I am hoping these work as well for you as they have for my husband.

Trust me, all that working out will stand for something even if they find something. My husband was always very physically fit. When he was diagnosed with bone cancer he was able to tolerate the hard treatments, and still continue to do well. He is in his 70s, and still way ahead of most with his disease, we attribute much of that to workouts, marathons, etc. even though he has been unable to do continue it after diagnosis. Walking is his friend now.

We discussed this but I still just couldn’t keep it up there with diet, so he added a modest supplement.

I also am religious about my vitamin D but my doc also asked me to take calcium. I know there ar side effects specific to low calcium levels but “oops” I don’t remember the details.

5 days ago · Prolia treatment for osteoporosis in Bones, Joints & Muscles

I have had 3 prolia injections so far with no side effects. Better than having a bunch of fractures, which is how I found out I had osteoporosis.

Prolia every 6 months, I have not tried anything else except diet and exercise, but I live in the northwest so vit D3 deficient,and I am 54 but postmenopausal by 15 years and took tamoxifen, and now Arimidex. A few years back I took a leap of faith off of a bucking horse and broke quite a few bones. The doc ordered a dexascan and I started prolia and vitaminD3, and calcium, and a walking regimen. I will find out in 6 months how well I am doing.
