Received a call from my oncologist office today that my density results showed some "thinning". Not quite sure the specifics as the RN will send the report to me, but doc did recommend starting on Actonel prescription.
I'm of a fairly small stature, 5'2", 105 lbs and do try to include lots of weight-bearing exercises, plus vit D and a few other supplements. Had my first density scan done prior to start of treatments in '09, which showed some thinning of neck of hip, then 2 years later NORMAL. Now today, this is the results and wondering if anyone has taken Actonel or another prescriptions with good results down the road. Presently on no meds and would rather run fast to avoid any, so coming to you all for some good experience and advice.
I've changed my diet, as do follow a lot of the Paleo eating and have changed a few of my supplements, one which was good for bones...hum????
Appreciate any thoughts or suggestions as value everyone's opinions....
