I had been on Fosamax for 10 years and discontinued taking it in Sept. 2009. I was encouraged to quit by my dentist and I asked my primary doctor if I should stop and she was agreeable to stop. The half-life of Fosmax in 10 years I recently found out. I have been having some femur pain in the left leg and am very concerned about a spontaneous fracture. Has anyone experienced this problem? I take another bone density test in Nov. 2011.

Maybe if the leg pain persists you could go for a X-Ray to put your mind at ease.
