Thanks ladies. My insurance company has declined Denosumab (we are going to try again). My bone scan was stable but I have a sore shoulder and the x-ray shows there is a met there. If insurance company decline again they will try my GP. I don't really have an issue with the ibandronic acid but it there is something better out there I am willing to give a try.
Denosumab is the preferred drug choice I understand from my onc. I was dx in Dec 2012 with primary bc & secondary in bones; Denosumab had just finished being trialled against zometa & there were good results so I was put straight on it. 21 injections later & I have very few side effects - just fatigue for a couple of hours after the injection - I am very happy with it!
Good luck with your treatments.

Hi - whats the view on bone strengtheners? My onc has me on ibandronic acid and I am currently stable but I hear about zometa and denosumab too. Are these meant to be more beneficial?
