My understanding is that Prolia is the “latest & greatest”. I have been on Forteo (daily injections into abdomen), Reclast (~1hr infusion once a year) & now Prolia (injection into abdomen 2x a year). It’s impossible for me to tell if I have pain side effects due to all my “normal” pain. I have NOT had any bone cancer related issues. BTW – since osteoporosis was discovered in 2008, my score has gone from -3.1 to -4.4. None of these treatments are a miracle drug but I will continue to try every Medically approved treatment available.
If anyone believes it is better to have a fracture then to take a medication that will hopefully keep you from fracturing a bone bc of a minimal risk of side effects, my opinion is that U really need to sit down and think about it. Fractures can lead to surgery, which may lead to infection & pain. That’s a certainty. Hope this helps in any way & that I did not offend anyone. 🙂
