Dem Bones Gonna Rise Again!
Wednesday, January 15, 2020
My appointment with my doctor yesterday, reviewing the results of December's bone density scan, was really encouraging.
It appears that every measure of my bone density has improved from the base test in 2014 and after a spontaneous fracture in 2017 and over my 2018 scan after one year on the Prolia injections . . .such that I don't need to be quite so concerned about more breaks.
Taking regular Vitamin D and calcium and regular weight bearing exercise are also part of the prescription and I'm doing both faithfully.
The Prolia injections are much more tolerable for me than the original oral medication, which made me quite nauseated one day a week and triggered some sharp jaw pain too.
All right then!! Really happy to have found something better that's working!!
