Why do so many rock stars need hip replacements? Does drug use or lifestyle play a role? Just curious :-)
Maybe alcohol: I'm not sure that rock stars have higher rates of hip replacement than the general population or that it is publicized when it happens. But if they do alcohol may play a role. Excess alcohol may be linked to avascular necrosis of the hip causing femoral head to collapse requiring hip replaced. ...Read more

Which drug would you choose for osteoporosis of hip prolia or reclast (zoledronic acid) what is better tolerated less side effects?
