My doctor has suggested coming off the Fosamax and going on Forteo. I am really concerned about the cancer risk. Any thoughts?
I was also taken off the Fosamax and put on Forteo as I was on the Fosamax for two years and my bones went from 17% risk to 34% risk. Obviously that didn't help me what so ever and I got twice as bad. I am concerned about the cancer risk but I'm also concerned about my bones going as fast as they have been so I guess I outweighed that and saw all the good this Forteo can do. I can get cancer from so many things these days so you just have to really decide I guess.
