  • I was prescribed Fosomax approx 15 years ago then ...

    I was prescribed Fosomax approx 15 years ago then ceased when told it was not to be taken for longer than 5 years. Following cessation of Fosomax I took no drugs for Osteoporosis. Then, approximately 3 years ago was prescribed Prolia and had a terrible reaction including urinary tract infection. I took only one injection of Prolia because of the adverse effect(s) it had on me and again ceased taking any drugs to treat Osteoporosis. Because my Osteoporosis is severe I was told by my Endocrinologist that I could reintroduce Fosomax. I have been taking it for 2 months and developed another urinary tract infection and having ongoing problems with my bladder generally. Urologist performed cystoscopy and says I have a strictured urethra. I had none of these problems before the single dose of Prolia and now suffering urinary tract infection from which I suspect is the Fosomax. I want to stop taking Fosomax but DO want to improve my bone strength. I am between a rock and a hard place. Would weight bearing exercise and improved diet do the trick? I am so tired of the pain and discomfort of urinary tract infections and bladder problems generally. Developed constipation on the reintroduction of Fosomax. Any suggestions? Is this site connected to the manufacturers of Fosomax?

I decided to decline all other drugs and have been taking supplements and eating a well balanced diet. I have just had a blood test and all looks fine except for a low white cell blood count. How can I improve this.

    I have recently sustained two broken ribs, the first when coughing and the second when I was ironing. I was in agony but just couldn't believe bones could break just like that! I had an ultrasound at my GP's practice and then a full body bone scan and sadly, I am appalled at the state of my whole skeletal system. I have had back and neck pain for a long time but put it down to inevitable wear and tear. I am saddened.
    I have been on levothyroxine for 25 years and lately it has been difficult to get the dose right. Also am on clopidogrel because I had a TIA in 2012 whilst being treated for cancer. I have obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and I feel that a diagnosis of osteoporosis may be the straw to "break the camel's back"... no pun intended ! Honest. I feel decrepid and long past my sell by date.

    I will do my best to get as much advice as possible in order to maintain the bones I have. Any kind words will be so welcome.
