LET ME KNOW PLEASE

Hi Everyone!
I have been busy with home things and doctor things for DH. AANNNDDD on top of everything else the gods are throwing at me, I have been diagnosed with osteoporosis. WTH? I have done a lot of research and find that the treatment for this is NOT conducive to my body or my life.  I would have to take the injection of Boniva. Is anyone out there on this or another Bisphosphonate?
The side effects are very devastating. I can not afford to have even one of them. So I would like to hear from you and how it is effecting you. I have read forums and the responses are not good. I can't find a "positive" forum on these medications.  I have made my own bone building cocktail and I will request another bone scan in 6 months.  I would love to hear from you or even if you know someone on these meds.
Thank you!

  2. I am sorry to hear this - You can comfort yourself with the fact that many woman after the menopause suffer from that ! I would try to get a second medical opinion as well.

    1. Thanks Susi. I would love to get a second opinion, however we have no doctors here. They all quit last year. Our medical facility did not hire doctors or DOs they hired PAs and mine is one can short of a six pack. I am trying someone in the next town over.

  3. I know that back in the 80's the man I worked for had it. Boniva was not invented yet. I have found that most doctors will give meds that are currently the new thing. But sometimes the older things worked too but they don't mention them. There HAS to be some other medication that you can take. I'll be interested to know if you have good results with what you are doing.
