Hi everyone,

I have been advised by my GP to have an Aclasta IV once a year as I have developed Osteoporosis as a result of taking Prednisone for the last 27 years. 

My question is: have any of you been advised to have this drug intraveinously and did your Transplant clinic approve it? Does it carry any risks to the transplanted kidney?

I'd be grateful for any advice.

Thank you,
