As mentioned in previous posts I had a steel rod inserted in my left femur in May 2016 for a fracture caused by taking alendronic acid tabs for osteoporosis. A year later and the right one is showing signs of similar problems. Am waiting for an MRI scan to confirm this. Also am having pain in both shoulders for which I am having osteopathy. I stopped AA in April 2016 but it seems it may remain in the system for up to 10 years or for ever.( Info from Dr and on line). Should appreciate comments from fellow sufferers.
