    I am a 1 year patient. Have experienced severe back pain, teeth chipping and overall feeling of deterioration. Will not continue, warn everyone, and hope it gets out of my system soon!

    Hi, I just had my 3rd injection of Prolia. So far - so good thank God. It is now the summer months and I tend to get more stiffness and neuropathy during this time from a previous cancer treatment I had. So I am not ready to say this is attributed to Prolia.
