The docs have been on at me for a few years about my osteoporotic spine and I’m realising I can no longer ignore them.

The specialist rheumy nurse I saw today mentioned a drug which is given sub-cutaneously twice a year.

Just wondering if anyone else has experience of Denosumab?

    Sorry, I haven't but I can understand the concern.

    I did find these, one by the NOS and the other by NICE. Hope they help.

    I have Prolia every six months, seems to work well , saying that I had to have an x-ray this morning for a fracture, oh dear!

    I don’t get any side affects though with this prescription.

    Hi there.

    I have osteoporosis also and even though my calcium levels are now normal. Could this be the reason that I have sore big toes?
