I was just told I have osteoporosis and that it is worse in my spine 2 months ago. My doctor wanted me to take the reclast iv infusion,but I read up on it and decided not to take it because i am already taking meds to keep my heart from beating so fast and that was one of the drawbacks with this one.I looked at the Prolia iv infusion and even tho it has a drawback it should'nt affect my heart from what I read. So I had the infusion yesterday and so far so good but it does say it takes 24 hrs. for any kind of side effect to start. Has anyone had this done and if so what do I have to look forward to. I have a family history of Cardiovascular diseases but I dont know of any one in my family having this. I love to work in my garden but I can't stand or walk more than 10 minutes before my back starts spasming severly and I have to sit down. I enjoy my computer . View Thread
