I was on very high doses of steroids from '78-'84. And yes, I have had some residual bone loss I believe attributed to those steroids. No proof, of course. But I have had to have both of my jaw joints (meniscus) replaced and just in the last few years, I have been battling osteoporosis. I have completed the 2 year Forteo therapy with excellent results shown on the bone density/dexa scans. Most recently I was battling a severe Vit D deficiency, which I have been able to "conquer"! If you haven't seen any bad reactions to the steroids by now, I would guess you are in pretty good shape. Have you had any bone density studies done, i.e. a dexa scan?
