    Had one shot 18 months ago and still suffering from the effects. Was healthy before and have been right since. Would not recommend to anyone.

    Consistent low back pain which forced me to the services of a physiatrist who recently did radio frequency ablation on low back. That procedure would normally stop the back pain but did not. The Prolia in my system counteracted and prevented the procedure from working. Nagging back pain. Also frequent upper respiratory infections, which I did read were a side effect, causing frequent asthmatic bro ... Show Full Comment

    Found out I had osteoporosis at age 53. Started Prolia treatment and calcium and vitamin D supliments. Lowered T score in spine from -3 to -2.6 after 3 injections, which is 18 months. Very happy and no side effects thank God.

Pain throughout the day. It is not worth the pain to contin ... Show Full Comment

    I went through the Fosamax protocol, and followed that by 2 years of daily Forteo injections. Improved my condition but still not back to normal. Next treatment was the Prolia. I have had 3 shots, going for my 4th soon. couldn't be happier. My bones are almost normal density. Im worried what happens when the protocol stops. I am terrified of this disease. Insidious and horrible. Yes, there is ... Show Full Comment
