My mom is 82 and took a prolia shot about 2 months ago. She has had nothing but pain in 1 of her legs ever since. She has to walk with a cane now. Never had to do this before. She was given gabapentin for her pain and it only helps a little. When will the effects of this shot wear off?
So sorry to hear about your mother's pain. The bone effects may wear off within a few months, but I've had bone pain and skin inflammation since my Prolia injection which was almost 2 years ago. You should really file a report with the FDA since I don't see that as a side effect from Prolia. If the FDA receives multiple reports of the problem, then they will list it as a new side effect which can warn others. That's what I did. Go to fda with gov after it. Then click on Medwatch, then click on the first bold print on that page which says: "Report a Serious Medical Product Problem Online". I hope that you will do that too.
