    I have experienced no side effects or problems. It is difficult for me to evaluate results, since comparison of bone scans from year to year do not give a clear picture, however the radiologist assures me we have definite improvement two years after the first treatment. The last scan describes my condition as osteopenia; the previous scan classified one site as osteoporosis.
