70 year old female, in FL, have taken fosamax for several years until it was making me sick, then switched to Actonel and stomach problems prompted me to switch to Boniva. Not sure if that is my problem but the less I eat the less I hurt, am down to eating pureed veg soup, protein & nutritional shakes, baby food, yogurt, applesauce, pudding, bananas, pureed veg soup, etc. After reading this will stop the Bonivia. I have very intense pain if I eat any solid food. It is the pits, quality of life has been reduced drastically. Diag: gastroparesis
