I am 53, 5'2 and weigh 105...I am a very odoorsy and active person. I run the dogs every other day, which usually is around 2 - 2 1/2 miles..when I'm not running the dogs I hike in the hills anywhere from 3 - 7 miles. I was diagnosed with Osteoporosis 2 years ago, my mother had it and its what ultimately caused her to give up on life. I started out trying Fortical nasal spray and Calcitriol, I did not want to use bisphosphinates. I have had 2 bone density scans using the same machine, and my last one showed my hip was a tiny bit better but my spine had gotten worse, my total Tscore for my spine was -2.8 (L1 -3.5, L2 -3.2) being the worst. I was told by my doctor that we need to try something else, I do not want to do Boniva etc. I thought about Reclast, the once a year infusion. Has anyone every tried this and what if any side effects have you had.
