In December of 2010, I had a hip replacement revision. It resulted in a femoral stress fracture which took forever to heal. Even after it healed, I still had pain. They determined it was because the metal is so much harder than my bones. They prescribed Forteo for 3 months which helped a lot with the pain, but I was very uncomfortable taking the drug after researching it. I took Evista for 5 years when I was in my 50’s and finally figured out it was the cause of severe muscle pain in my legs. I have tried other bone drugs, but they caused the same problems. In April of 2013, I received an OsteoBoneBuilder- Plus ® brochure and decided it was worth a try. My doctor laughed at me when I told him what I was going to do. He wanted me to continue with Forteo. As you can see from the test results, I am having the last laugh. My pain is 98% gone and I can do most of the activities I want.
