    Has anyone had any experience with Forteo? As it is the only medication that will build bone, I would like to take it, but wonder if it has been tested long enough. The risk of bone cancer is pretty daunting........

    I know you can not use Forteo if you have had any radiation to your bones in the past. I had been looking at Forteo as I am 10.9% below fracture level and called the company that makes it -- they told me not to take it.

    Hope this helps.
