Has anyone ever heard of a bone disease called osteopetrosis? Or does anyone know any information about bone diseases?

  • YIKES! You have never heard of Osteoporosis? WHere have you been? I have known about it for about 20 years. And havent you seen all the Boniva commercials on TV? ANd all the articles in magazines and online?
    WOW.
    Last spring I had a bone scan andit showed I have it. I take a Boniva pill every month and hopefully, my bones will be in better shape. If you have osteoporosis ,your bones are more fragile and easily broken. If you have a poor diet,drink lots of soda and booze, you mighthave it.

  • I have doing some research but since they are still trying to pin point the severity of the bone desease I was just hoping I could find anyone who has children or understands anything about the bone disease. I would love just to meet and get support from others during all this. Thanks in advance for the support.
