Prolia therapy for osteoporosis


I am interested in finding out if anyone has taken the injection Prolia for osteoporosis. I am at the end of my five years of tamoxifen, and my bone density tests have discovered that my bones have weakened. I would welcome any feedback on your experiences.


I work for a Physician and I kept saying something isn't right with my periods. They were extremely heavy and painful. He ordered Ultrasounds which showed uterine benign fibroids. I kept complaining and one night the pain and bleeding was so intense I went to the ER, which is totally not me, I've never gone to the ER. While at the ER the doctor treated me as though I was just having a bad period and wanted to give me pain medication and send me home. I barely take Tylenol I was not going to mask this with a narcotic SOMETHING was wrong. I demanded an Ultrasound.

My husband just passed away

My husband of 23 years passed away 2 months ago after a very courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. He fought it for almost 26 months but lost his battle to a stroke after getting a pain procedure done. A lot of people don't know or understand what a cancer patient or a care giver goes through on a daily bases. My husband was an amazing person, he loved his family and life. Cancer no matter what kind destroys you from the inside, either from the drugs or the fears for not only yourself but for your loved ones as well. I am so very proud of my husband he never gave up fighting cancer.

Just completed 35 rads/3 doses Cisplatin

I have been lurking on the sidelines ever since receiving my diagnosis of one tonsil tumor + one lymph node, P16, HPV head and neck cancer on July 12, 2016.  I have found so many of the psts here useful and inspirational.  One needs to learn how to grope and crawl through this agonizing treatment (that's use value), and inspiration is all important for those dark days when the gagging, pain, and phlegm increase.  I had my last dose of radiation Mon day, Oct. 11, and I am now in post treatment, recovery mode.

Success Story of Hope

Hello fellow friends,


Recurrent Thyroid Cancer

Where to start.  In 2008 I had my first stage 3 Cancer surgery.  Remove the entire thyroid,  followed that with four rounds of I 131.  1 1/2 years later lost 1/2 half of a kidney,  last year they removed lymph nodes from behide my right ear, down and aroundmy throat, and down  to my mid sternum, and that was followed with 34 rounds of high intensity external beam radiation, to same areas.  No longer can work, many  years of education gone.  Now, I am told the Pet scan from last week has shown it is back in the thyroid bed, and the radiologist has made me a follow up appointment with the can

lost and confused

I just had a total gastrectomy about a month ago.   I was discharged without much follow up at all, other than the appointment to remove my staples.  I haven't met with a dietician or a nutritionist and I have no idea what I'm supposed to be doing.  The doc did say to eat 6 to 8 small meals a day.  A nutritionist in the hospital threw me a couple sheets of paper before discharge, but they are not very helpful.   I don't know portion size, though yesterday I DID manage to get a decent information sheet emailed to me from a nutritionist at UT so I think I'm on the right track..

The inspiration continues

My story


In June of 2011, I had a routine colonoscopy at a clinic near our home in Lansing, Michigan. I had been having some issues and was hoping the gastroenterologist doing the procedure would be able to shed some light. When I woke up after the colonoscopy, my husband was there. Because I had instructed the doctor to call him only if he found anything problematic during the procedure, I knew something was wrong. He told me that he found a mass and based on his experience, he was fairly certain it was cancerous. He had scheduled me for a consultation with a surgeon.
