Wed, Sep 25 11:26am · Prolia treatment for osteoporosis in Bones, Joints & Muscles

In 2 days I go in for my second set of shots of Evenity. Similar side effects to Forteo and other osteoporosis meds. It does carry a black label warning because of stroke and cardiac problems. So far I have had no effects other than the usual constant aches and pains.
Hopefully this one works well enough I can have my back surgery next year.

I'm starting on forteo this week. Is there anything I should avoid while on it?

After reading some other threads on vit d levels, I was surprised to hear others levels. 2 years ago, my vit d level was 14. Last year it was up to 20. Just had it rechecked but haven't gotten my results. My Dr didn't check the parathyroid even though I asked about it. Not sure if I should push for that or see an endocrinologist….

Thank you for the information and input. I am leaning towards Forteo as well as looking into a second opinion.

I was recently scheduled to have back surgery but was cancelled when my dexa scan showed osteoporosis in my spine. The recommendation is that I begin Forteo treatment. Wondering if I need to get a second opinion or if this is common. Are there any other alternatives?
