    DEXA shows -7.6 in left hip

    Hello all, Can anyone tell me what the odds are with osteoporosis this severe, what if any recovery would be if I break this hip. Will I be in a wheelchair for the rest of my life? I'm 61 and was diagnosed 2 years ago. Waiting for the most recent scan results and even though I've been on Fossamax for 2 years, I'm not hopeful. Thanks for any input.

    Dr. cant tell if Fosamax causing more IBS because I have it. Change to infusion?

    I have had IBS-D for years which now became IBS C&D. On Fosamax for 3 months now and we cant tell if it causing side effect bowel issues. Dr. wants to try a once a year infusion because it bypasses the stomach. Would this mean that if there was a side effect, it would last a year? Im wondering if I should put up with my belly symptoms (constipation, then urgent diareah). Thoughts?

    Help...I'm freaking out over bone density test!

    Help...I just had a bone density test and it's showing I'm osteoporotic (score of -3 according to the radiology tech....my ob-gyn has not reviewed it with me yet). I'm only 53 and otherwise in perfect health!. I am completely freaking out now, afraid I'll be labeled as osteoporotic (with no idea what implications that will have) and doomed to a life of cifosis and compression fractures. I have absolutely no fracture history. I was drastically underweight for a brief time as a teenager....

    Normal bone density scan, so then why...

    I'm 58 y/o, post-menopausal, and had my first DEXA bone density scan a few months ago. Said my bone density was good and was what to be expected in a woman my age. Thought it curious though; in the letter I received from the office, they recommended I consume 1500 to 2000 mg of calcium daily. That would be an increase from the twice daily, 500 mg doses I have been taking since what seems like forever (probably since I hit menopause 7 years ago). Everything I've read says you shouldn't....

    Upset about the diagnosis of osteoporosis

    I just turned 72. Until last year, my bone density tests revealed osteopenia. Last year for the first time it revealed age related osteoporosis with some bone loss in my left hip...but not in my spine or right hip. My doctor wanted me to start on Boniva, but I decided to wait until my next test, which is coming up this Saturday. I am generally in good physical health. I am thin, exercise regularly and lead an active life style. I have decided that if the next test shows additional bone loss, I will....
