Hi all,,

I have been on Boniva for two and half years for stress fractures in my foot.

I have started to have bilateral thigh pain started after 3 rd cycle of TCH and my doctors thought it was from chemo

2 months after finishing chemo it started to get worse limiting my walking and had to take pain meds around the clock

Finally I insisted on MRI and diagnosed with Femur shaft atypical stress fracture on both sides and Radiologist said it is most likely from Boniva and Steroids

So I asked my MO not to give steroids any longer with Kadcyla.

Any one had similar experience and how were you treated.

I’m seeing Ortho next week.

Thanks in advance
