I sure wish the Doctors would have know this when
my young daughter of 39 passed away from Breast
Cancer in 2003. Her Cancer was Hormone Receptive.
Hope this will help many many women to survive this
horible cancer.

Is this true? I have read only side effects not so much benefits. I hope this is true because what I know is that a drug fosamax used to treat bone problems can cause fosamax and femur fracture that is why many file fosamax lawsuit. http://www.rotlaw.com/fosamax/

Knowing that bone drugs may have other therapeutic effects, in cancer patients at the most, is indeed promising. However, one would think that the risk of side effects from these drugs may also be imminent when taken by cancer patients. Many osteoporotic patients have reported of cases of adverse events from the long-term use of osteoporosis drug like Fosamax. It helps to get educated.

This is good news for cancer victims but they should be aware of the dangers of taking bisphosphonates like Evista or they could be trading one life-changing condition for another. http://www.fosamaxclassactionlawsuit.com

This post will definitely help those who are finding information about breast cancer. Posts like this should be well-disseminated just like the data on ASR Hip Replacement Recall. Just an additional input, the manufacturing company DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. is recently being charged with various lawsuits filed by law firms in UK, US and Australia, in behalf of patients who underwent hip replacement operations. With DePuy ASR lawsuit and legal charges piling up globally, DePuy should pay attention to these the hip replacement problems experienced by its patients. To avoid much adverse effects, hip replacement problems should be dealt with immediately. See http://www.depuyhipreplacementlawsuit.com

What in the world makes you think we aren't told about that? What hubris, to come in here and try to scare people away from a life-saving drug.

Thanks for your terrific guidance, but I'd rather be alive with a broken leg than dead in any shape.

I think this is an organized campaign to either try to scare people away from this LIFESAVING drug, or to get clients for a class action lawsuit.

Either way it's smarmy. I'm very sorry if any of the people here have actually had these (fairly rare) side effects, but some of us want to live. Me, for instance. I gladly make use of these drugs. Thanks, but I don't need some stranger interfering with my medical care. Anyone on those drugs knows about the risks.
