Hello! I had my first denosumab injection in March, having had other previous treatments for many years, e.g. risedronate. However, I fractured my hip last summer and had to have a hip replacement, so my Osteoporosis consultant suggested denosumab for 3 years, once every 6 months. I am quite nervous about this, because I am afraid of getting osteo-necrosis of the jaw and/or unexplained fractures of the femur, - both, I know, are possible side-effects.
So far, so good, but then it is only 2 months since my first injection! A friend of mine has been on this treatment for 2 years and seems okay. However, I have read some very negative comments about denosumab in the 'Drugs' section on this site.
Anyone able to say anything positive about this drug? Will really appreciate any relevant comments. Many thanks, everyone.
