Red face Long term iv bisphosphonates and fractures, breast cancer survivor with mets to bones

Areany other women on this site who were on iv AREDIA and ZOMETA for a long enough time to be having the reverse reaction and bones are fracturing, like mine, at a rate of five in six years, including Osteonecrosis of the jaw. I've already experienced two spontaneous femur fractures, bi lateral foot fractures and pieces of my mandible falling out into my mouth. I'm really scared and, I think, isolated, as I know no one else in my situation altho I've heard there are approx eight hundred of us fragile souls across the country. We are different than women with osteopenia and osteoporosis in that, at least in my case, I have normal bone scans and yet...my new doctor just mention the drug Forteo to me and I'm trying to find out the pros and cons. At this point, my inclination is to stay away from big pharmaceutical medications and stick with calcium citrate and vit d..I'm hoping someone will read this and please know I'm open to any and all experiences, suggestions etc I have an appt with a naturopath doctor to discuss homeopathy because the notion of Forteo just frightens me. Anyone that can relate to me I'd so appreciate some feedback. I'm desperate

Thank you Titchou. Yes it's looking more and more that way. Perhaps the very drugs I was on that are meant to help with osteoporosis in fact harmed me
