    using forteo after knee replacement

    Any one have information on the advisablility of taking Forteo after knee replacement? Forteo builds bone, so will that cause problems with the knee?

    Forteo is marketed to increase bone density in the spine and hips. I don't know that it effects other bones although I didn't have one cavity the whole two years I was on Forteo.
