I had my fourth injection today. I have never had any side effects. I had a bone density scan in January and my bone density had increased to the point where my spine density is no longer considered osteoporosis.

I just had my third injection of Prolia and may be one of the lucky ones. I had been taking Boniva through infusion and had horrible side effects.

Am having another bone scan in 2 months and am hoping my T scores have improved.

My 90 year old mother-in-law took prolia a month ago. After two weeks, she noticed cold sores on her lip and tingling in her fingers and toes. She's has severe back pain, weak, has no appetite and has flu like symptoms. She's worse now than before the injection. The elderly should not be given this shot.
