I just had my second shot and my hands feel like they are going to explode. They are not swollen at all but the pain is unbearable. I don't remember having this bad of a reaction with the first shot. Is this stuff accumlative? Has anyone completed the 2 years of injections and if so, was there a signficant change in bone density? I am lucky since they caught my breast cancer early (I hope) but this pain is unbelievable.
I agree with Laura about this answer. I tke Forteo shots which are daily not every six months like prolia. It sounds like it could be an allergic reaction of some sort. Forteo is a 26 month program, & I have completed 20 months. After the first 12, they did another DEXA scan, & I had all kinds of new bone bulding. I haven't had a fracture since I started this drug which in itself is a miracle. You may be able to better handle this drug as compared to the prolia. Just a thought...
