      Sorry to see this, sometimes public figures just stop showing up and we find out later that they have died from cancer. They kept it private.

      It takes a lot of courage to share your cancer journey with the public. I can totally understand wanting to keep it private. But, I do think when a public person does share, it helps the rest of the world (the non-cancer world) understand what we face daily. I also hate cancer.

      I was already on fosamax pre breast cancer for osteopenia. I developed reflux so I quit taking it. This was after being on AIs for a couple of years. I've been on them for over 5 years now with almost 5 more to go. I'm still osteopenic, but had my first prolia injection several months ago with no side effects. My doctor said they're finding that prolia helps prevent the cancer from coming back. An added bonus!

      I have read good things here. People I have talked to and also read about have had such negative bad experiences. My doctor wants me to do prolia. But I'm very scared. Overall the ratings are only a 4.1 improvement. I read every thing I can on the drug

      Interesting news! I hadn't heard that Prolia has anti-cancer benefits. Can't wait to find out more! My oncologist said he has used much larger doses for cancer that has spread to the bones, and has never had a patient get jaw necrosis. My concern was something I've read about, that the balance of osteoclasts and osteoblasts is upset, so that the bone is older and more brittle even though it's denser. I'm getting my first dose soon, along with required education (and I believe a consent form, though I'm not sure about that.) I can't take Tamoxifen; have to take the AI, and I really appreciate the positive answers. Thanks!
