Denosumab

Last reply: 4 months ago

Hi all, I'm a hormone receptor-negative, HER2+ metastatic breast cancer patient receiving Paclitaxel, Pertuzumab and Trastuzumab on the first week of each cycle, Paclitaxel on the second week and then a third week off. I have osteoporosis that predates this relapse and take a Prolia (Denosumab) 60mg injection every six months to protect my bones. This is my first injection while on chemotherapy and I'm wondering if it's safe? My doctor said it was fine, but didn't really stop to think about it and I'd value a second opinion if anyone has had any experience!

Hi Denosumab

While I don't have any experience of needing a Prolia injection every six months I noticed you haven't had any answers yet so I thought I'd check in with you. I would imagine if your oncologist said it was okay to have the injection than it's safe for you.

Best wishes
