I'm 54 with postmenopausal osteoporosos. I have multiple thoracic spine fractures.
I cannot tolerate the usual treatment for osteoporosis so my consultant had a battle with the powers that be to get me proleos as it usually is only given to 60years plus. Long story short, i now am on this treatment, just over a week and thankfully the only side effects so far is nausea.
Any idea how long this medication takes to start to strengthen bones?
Any one had bad side effects?
Also I am to see a spinal specialist about vertoplasty (a type of cement injected into the spine) as my back pain is continuous and unbearable.
Any info on any of the above would be very much appreciated.
Any pain relief info etc!
