I had been on Fosamax plus D for a couple of years till I stopped taking it about 6 months ago. Reason for stopping it was a suspicion that it may have caused bone spurs in my shoulder and also my spine. I had to have shoulder surgery last year and spine surgery about 3 months ago. Before that I was a very healthy person with no problems. I had hysterectomy about 5 years ago and was put on Actonel for a couple of years because my obgyn found me to have a borderline case of osteoporosis of the hip. Two years later my general physician put me on Fosamax plus D instead.
I heard about the spontaneous fracture of the thigh bone with Fosamax plus D users and wondered if my bone spur problem could also be linked with that.
If anyone else has had a similar experience, I'd be interested to know.
