Hi Margaret: Sorry to hear about your cancer
I hope you are much better now and it's behind you completely!!! When I went on Forteo, one of the first questions they asked was had I ever had cancer, and if so, did I have radiation admin to the bone. The dr said if I had radiation, I couldn't take it. You can read about this in the ccjm I post a lot on Forteo. It's covered under the para on "who shouldn't get Forteo."
Now if you didn't have radiation, that "might" be a reason you could take it, but to be sure I would get a second, third or fourth opinion on it. Once your bones have been irradiated, they are more susceptible to bone cancer when taking "this" drug.
Let me know if you can't find the link I'm talking about, I post it frequently. And if you haven't read it, you really should, if you are seriously considering taking Forteo. Did the dr say why he thought you could take it, or is it because you never had radiation?
Here it is just in case you need it:
It's on page 594 paragraph: "Who Shouldn't Get Forteo"
Maybe you could have your dr read it "if" there is some dispute about it.
