Did anyone hear of adrug called PROLIA? It's used in the treatment of bone loss in men with nonmestatic prostrate cancer. Today I was at my urologist & asked about a bone test since I'm on FIRMAGON over one year. He told me I didn't need a bone test since my PSA is on a steady decline. Currently PSA is 0.38---last month it was 0.43.
I didn't like what I read on the internet about Prolia & I'm somewhat scared to get the shot next month.
Won't calcium pills, diet & exercise do the same thing to help the bones? I feel good now & have zero problems with the bones.
I read the incidence of serious adverse events was VERY HIGH--34.6% in the Prolia group during clinical trials.
PlEASE respond if you know anything about this drug.
