    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    I've had pretty severe osteoporosis since menopause, when it was discovered. I've broken several discs in my back. After taking the same
    med for all this time, my doc says it isn't doing me much good anymore
    and wants me to take Prolea shots twice a year. I've researched the drug and to tell you the truth, I'm kind of scared about all the possible side effects at my age. I'm 73. What do you think about it?
