Hello to all. I'm new to the group, but I feel linked to all of you. I had a double mastectomy 14 months ago. I went through four A/C chemotherapy treatments. I have had a diagnosis of osteoporosis for a few years. My concern: I have broken two ribs in the last few months, and have very little idea how I have done so! Am I that fragile? I plan to talk to my endocrinologist and oncologist, but I'm curious to know if any of you have been breaking bones?! Also, my oncolgist, who hung the moon, continues to have me take bone scans, CT scans, and MRI's, over every small abnormality. I rejoice that he is so thorough, but I feel very vulnerable when every 3 months I have to go through the same routine. I always check out o.k.!
