Dr. Roger J. Geronimo on Dec, 31, 2013:
I did however here in Florida the statue of limitations is only 2 years. I literally went to dozens of attorney's and none would take the case. The insurance industry rules here in Florida. I do commercials for Farah and Farah, a large Jacksonville firm, and am a friend. Even they declined the case. I can't tell you how frustrating and disappointing this was.
Thanks for asking.

Shauna, your 90-year-old mother who was killed by Reclast...how much did she weigh at the time of infusion? My mother was dead within a month of her Reclast infusion, no prior medical issues, went to the gym three times a week, and her official cause of death was Reclast Overdose. I've read many stories of family members being killed ny this drug, but usually by acute renal failure or AFib.
Shauna Hampshire on Sep, 24, 2012:
My mother, Ruth Santrock had a Reclast Infusion on June 26,2012 and she died. 59 days later after Hyponatremia. She had the infusion before, but this time I guess her body just couldn't take the intensity of the infusion.
My mother was 90 years old. She passed away in South Florida. The only other medicine she took was diovan, Atenenol and as clonidine patch for high.blood pressure.
She had not been sick except.for a UTI back in December 2011.
Roger J. Geronimo on Dec, 25, 2012:
My wife, age 50, passed away from a Reclast injection May 2011. A healthy female, she had the injection late Thursday afternoon. She was told to go home and drink fluids which she did until sleep 4 hours later. Around 6 pm Friday pm she started to have flu like symptoms. She was dead early Sunday am about 30 hours later. The medical examiner listed the cause of death as severe renal failure caused by drug interaction (Reclast) The renal failure was so severe that the Funeral director could not repair her face for viewing saying it was the worst case of dehydration he had ever seen. She was a beautiful woman and we were forced to have a closed casket.
The doctor sent her home which the packaging/box the iv injection of Reclast came in and told her to go home and read it.

Mr. Geronimo: I am very sorry for your loss. Are you pursuing legal action regarding your wife's death?
Linda on Jan, 6, 2013:
I am so sorry. I have always been afraid of the twice a year infusion injections. The receptionist at my gynecologist's office (not even the doctor) called and told me that despite the fact that I have been taking fosamax, actonal, and boniva for 8 years, I have osteoporosis in my right hip and I should go for a twice a year injection called prolia. When I researchedit, Everyone in the initial study had side effects and there were many deaths. I do not understand why the doctors are pushing these new drugs and don't care if we are the small percentage of guinea pigs who will die? I amseeking alternative natural remedies for my osteoporosis.
From this study (3 months ago):
Less frequent gout attacks. But still get gout attacks every 2-3 months. BP and uric acid levels are good.
Richard on Dec, 14, 2013:
I am a male 68. First gout attack 18 months ago. Started Uloric 40mg which lowered serum uric acid to 4.8 but gout flares persisted about every six weeks. Upped dose to 80mg three months ago but no change so far. I have moderate CKD with stable creatinine of 1.7. I take 20mg Benicar for mildly elevated bp due to CKD. Also on Lipitor 10mg. What should I do to stop the gout attacks?
