Re: Prolia and coronavirus

Hi Fezzy1952

 

Thanks for your post. It’s understandable that you’re concerned about your risk of contracting coronavirus (Covid19), given you’re on Denosumab Prolia.

 

Those who may be at higher risk include anyone with low immunity, such as people having chemotherapy or people who have had chemotherapy in the last three months.  Therefore, you may be considered to be high risk. However, it’s important to talk to your hospital team to discuss this.

 

Our webpage, has more Advice on Coronavirus for people with cancer

 

The following advice from the NHS  will help protect you and others.

 

If you’d like further information or are still worried, you could contact the coronavirus service.

 

If you have symptoms and need to speak to someone:

 

in England call 111

 

In Wales call 111

 

In Northern Ireland call 111

 

In Scotland: call your GP surgery or 111 (NHS 24) if surgery is closed

 

At Breast Cancer Now, we offer a variety of services to support you. At the present time, we’re suspending our face to face services.

 

Do call our Helpline if you would like to talk this through or have any further questions. Your call will be confidential and the number is free from UK landlines and all mobile networks.

 

The number is 0808 800 6000 (Text relay prefix 18001).

 

Our opening hours are Monday to Friday 9am - 4pm and 9am -1pm on Saturday. Out of hours you can leave a message and we will call you back when we next open.

 

Best wishes

Prolia and coronavirus

I am receiving 6 monthly injections of Denosumab Prolia for osteoporosis and on Anastrozole for 5 years. Will I be at greater risk if I contracted coronavirus, as I have read that infections can be more severe when on Prolia.  Fezzy1952
