HK MOM Says:


My bone density loss was -2.6 on December 2015, but after my third shot, my bone scan came back as -2.0 and I am going for a 4th shot this month. Can you tell me how many more shots I can go for, in order to become normal? I know my doctor might not be able to tell me how long. Please give me advice. Thank you!

It sounds like your bone density loss has improved since the third shot. Do you find that to be the case as well based on how you feel? Have you gotten your 4th shot yet? And have any bone density results came back after the 4th shot to help determine your progress?

In regards to how many shots one may need in order for bone density to become normal, my conclusion based on other Prolia discussion threads here, is that there's no way to know for certain because we all respond differently.

From what I'm gathering, in some cases the side effects are too much to bear and patients just stop treatment altogether, while others have their own unique reaction. And this is probably why doctors might not be able to give you a straight forward answer either. So I think the best approach may be to continuously re-evaluate your situation according to the bone density results after each shot.

Please post back if you have any updates!

What efffect does Prolia have on a bone fracture? I have a fractured wrist and scheduled for my next injection next week. Will it slow the healing process?

I have had a emprovments like, I am not bleeding under the skin at this time.my hair is still thinning. Weight gain is still a problem.the worst is my teeth. One of my upper teeth just broke off.inorder to fix that had to take out two teeth to fix it,because the bone is deteriorating because of the Prolia Shot.have had trouble ever since I had that shot with my mouth and teeth.i will never take a nother Prolia Shot,it came close to killing me. I hope someday some one will sue that company for every thing they have for what that shot has done to people,when they do I’m in.
