Linda's experience of Paget's disease
Linda's story

Linda - craft making"In 1993, I was diagnosed with Paget's Disease in my skull, spine, and right femur. Paget’s hadn't been diagnosed in my family before but I am sure my maternal grandmother had it. I was very lucky in being referred to an excellent consultant. I did have side effects from Pamidronate but I am fine with Zoledronate which I had 3 years ago. It worked well and now in 2014, I am still pain free. If you are diagnosed with Paget's Disease please don’t worry there is treatment and lots of help. Being a member of the Paget’s Association is absolutely brilliant. I needed help when I was diagnosed and lucky found the Association. The rest is history. They are so helpful and supportive".  (2014)
