Hi, My name is Lois,I fell June 1st,08 and broke my femer. I could not believe I had done so much damage to my self falling off a step. I was very slow to heal, they said it was due to my smoking. No one in any of the many Dr's offices I have been to said anything about Fosamax or my taking the drug. I now have a plate and screws in my leg, althought my leg is now OK my knee is my problem now. The swelling never went away and I have some pain walking. I am 64 and I was taking Fosamax off and on for about 3 years. I am now worried about my other leg.
