I was diagnosed with osteoporosis 2 years ago following a wrist fracture. I had a parathyroidectomy in August. I am unable to take alendronic acid due to stomach problems and have been advised to have a zolendronate infusion. However, I am concerned about side effects, in particular hair loss, skin changes and joint pain. Could people please share their experiences, good or bad.
I presently take a calcium, zinc, magnesium, vit D supplement, do as much walking as I can and keep an eye on calcium in my diet. Thank you.
