... Well, after I finish 12 months on Forteo (another 5 months to go), if my BMD is better than -2.0, I think I might now be inclined to decline the second 12 months, until my BMD worsens back to osteoporosis (-2.5). But I'll decide that when the first 12 months are finished. (17 replies)

... about this, since we all knew that something like this could possibly happen, but what is real important to remember, is that there still is no link between the forteo and the cancer. This patient had an extremely complex medical history with several other severe diseases. ... (17 replies)
... I don't have any side effects from the Forteo and it's working unbelievably!!!! The Dr is even shock at my improvement. ... (17 replies)

... I didn't know one could have another course, but apparently more studies have been done and so far, no osteosarcomas. I told him that I'd been nervous about the osteosarcoma and was sort of glad to be finished with Forteo. ... (17 replies)
... To be compeletly honest...I stopped taking forteo because I could not shake my anxiety about taking the forteo and its association with osteosarcoma. Now this news makes me even more nervous about getting back on forteo. ... (17 replies)

... there were no Human deaths during the clinical trials, just what we already know about the rat testing. Sorry if that wasn't made clear. In the general public, osteosarcoma occurs at 4 in 1 million patients. ... (17 replies)

... Thanks for the link. This is pretty scary, since before this, no human on Forteo had developed an osteosarcoma. I guess I'm going to hang in and finish the course of treatment. I'm done with my two years on March 1st. ... (17 replies)
