    thank you for letting us know about how to go about Fosamax lawsuit .
    Many women have been seriously hurt by doctors giving unsuspecting women this very dangerous drug.
    We all need to know the facts as Ignorance is Bliss and we are here to help other people not harm them so if you know something is going to seriously hurt somebody and you do not say something .... then your part of the problem.
    thanks again Pantherkill

    I severely broke my femur and femoral head, had surgery and 7 day hospital stay, followed by inpatient rehab 30 days. My problem is that my leg broke SO Easy. I tripped over a 5 gallon can, my left leg seemed to break while it was in the "air" as I heard it "Pop". Way too easy to break. The pain was
    excrutiating and I was home alone. By the grace of God, my cell phone was in my pocket & I was able to call husband and son, they called EMS. This was a horror story of pain incurred while in the ER of the local hospital. I am STILL recuperating. On my feet but walking with an ungly limp. It has been slightly over three months. Maybe it just takes longer to not feel the pain when I walk.

    What I can't understand, I took Fosamax for over ten years at least, but that was maybe eight years ago. I do not know much about the lawsuit, except that I heard femur breaks that do not seemed warranted are associated with having taken Fosamax. Has anyone had a similar experience? Any info would be much appreciated. Thanks, Monjean
