i just wondered how quickly anybody on bisphosphonates started them after surgery/ other main treatments ? How long is too long to wait ?
Hi, I had surgery in August, radiotherapy early October and e first bisphosphonate late October, after a bone density scan. Hope that helps
I finished Radiotherapy in June and began in July. I have daily tablet not infusions as had allergy to one of my chemo's and said ITF allergic would be easier to stop tablets. So far all ok. I had a dexa scan before I started all my treatment. Good luck hon xx
I have a weekly tablet of Alendronic acid. My first oncologist didn't believe I had osteoporosis even though dexa scans said I had it. Surgery Dec, radiotherapy in Feb, started Bisphosphonates end October. Each oncologist works in a different way I feel. There is a limit to what we and they can respond to at any given moment. Thankfully it all works out in the end. 9 mths on hormone blockers is a trial, one I have to work out how to live with.
