Comment:
I previously wrote regarding side affects from prolia. Amgen Health advised me to have my hearing checked as I wear hearing aides and cannot hear well with them on anymore. I had my hearing test today. Since my last hearing test in July 2013, one month before taking the second Prolia shot, I have lost 25% more of my hearing. I was told that this amount of hearing loss in 7 months is unpresented w ... Show Full Comment

Finally a pulmonologist saw me and said I had a serious deep lung infection, possibly Community Acquired MRSA. I have been on a heavy duty antibi ... Show Full Comment

I had my first Prolia shot in Oct."13. About 6 weeks later had had horrible pain in hip, calve and a numb foot- horrible. I had xrays, an ultrasound and rounds of acupuncture, took Tramadol. NOTHING helped. No one could tell me what was wrong . Then it dawned on me, the Prolia! I am due for a second shot in April. There is no way I am going thru that again. and I can not tolerate oral meds. I ... Show Full Comment

Comment:

A few weeks after the 2nd injection I experienced hip and back pain that completely changed my life. The cost of the drug pales in comparison to what I have paid out for various therapies. The pain was severe and totally inexplicable; I did not ' ... Show Full Comment
