........with so many research on Cox-2 done which indicates that Cox-2 inhibitors inhibit or prevent proper bone or spine healing (Vioxx, Celebrex as Cox-2 inhibitors are thus alleged to have that issue)- I wonder what concurrent simultaneous use with Fosamax may have waiting for people...

Both work by interfering with the body's natural process of bone healing (Cox-2 inhibitors)+ inhibiting bone regeneration (Fosamax). I sure as heck would not to be taking the two types of drugs at the same time!

Bisphosphonate drugs administered intravenously for cancer treatment have been reported to cause osteonecrosis of the jaw. However, this class of drug where fosamax belongs are also being used by people to treat osteoporosis although administered orally. I wonder if has the same effect.

Indeed cancer is a life threatening disease and once you are struck with it, there is a small possibility of survival unless you were able to do something in preventing it getting worse through surgery chemotherapy or radiation. See also http://www.depuypinnaclelawsuit.com/hip-repla...

It looks like the article attached did not match the link. Anyway, I though bisphosphonates are used for osteoporosis and not for cancer?

This news only serves to galvanize those who've claimed that bisphosphonates are not the wonder drug that manufacturer's claimed it was. Hopefully this drug will one day be removed from sale as other defective meds have gone before it. http://www.fosamaxclassactionlawsuit.com/onj/

Cancer is indeed a threatening serious disease and to suffer from a yet another daunting health problem as side effect from an osteoporosis drug makes it all disheartening. Bone drugs are known as secondary treatments to bone-related problems in cancer patients, although it may also make the vulnerable to unnecessary health risks from adverse effects of Fosamax and the likes of bisphosphonates.
