    Posted: Aug/20/2017 at 9:59am
My husband had a knee replacement 2 years before and was doing well. The nurse practitioner recommended a dexa scan, in case the other knee needed replaced in the future. She then recommended a Prolia shot every 6 months to build up the bone density. Two week after the shot, which was one and one half years ago, the nerve pain in the leg started and has increasingly gotten worse for the past year and a half. Has anyone else had this happen after a Prolia shot? What is so disturbing, when seen by the surgeon 3 week later, he was told he didn't really need the Prolia shot. His osteopenia wasn't that bad!

I'm wondering if this was really caused by the Prolia or if there is nerve compression coming from the spine? Has he had an MRI of the lumbar spine done?

Please donate to help Chronicpainsite.com continue to help others.

My journey with chronic pain began over 30 years ago, while as a young nurse working spinal rehab, I injured my back lifting a patient. I am now fused from L2-S1. I have multiple thoracic and cervical issues. I'm a retired RN/PA and I know and understand the frustrations on both ends of the treatment spectrum of dealing with CP. It's been my goal since 2008, when we started this site, to reach out and help as many people in pain as possible. We will continue the fight as long as we can. Please, if you can help us continue to help you and others, donate. Thank you.

I really hope that your husbands doctor looks into why he is having nerve pain. Please remember a second opinion may be in order.
I will be waiting to hear the results of a doctor visit and tests that will help getting a diagnosis.
