Hi all,
my 16 yr. old daughter had a hip replacement in June (partial Hip called Birmingham Hip Resurfacing, Tumor left the femoral neck skinny and it had to be strenghtened since the femoral head is capped with the metal cap). Prior to that she had taken Boniva, which didn't seem to do much (for erosive bone cysts etc.).
She started Fosamax after she started walking and of course this might have helped as well but it looks like Fosamax did more for her with less side effects. She took only half a pill a week. Femoral neck got stronger, she may get of Fosamax for now.

So, happy to report some success here with Fosamax. Thought I pass that on.
