Re: boniva and necrosis of the jaw
I just happened to go to the osteoporosis board. I had necrosis of the jaw and my doctor put me on IV antibiotics. It took a year to get rid of the infection and for the bone to stop dieing. One doctor said that they would put me on oral antibiotics and we'd just have to see. I told my other doctor this was unacceptable and I wanted this mess fixed. I'm happy to say that part is but I need another tooth pulled and can't since I still have too much of the biphosphonate in my system.
I definitely think that the IV antibiotic was the only way to go for me since we didn't catch it in time. However, it is an expensive option.
Please discuss these options with your doctor and try to get a hold of it now. I pray you will get better.
