I am sure we have talked about this before, but I cannot find the thread.
I was diagnosed with osteoporosis in my spine and osteopenia in the hips and neck, right after I finished chemo. I told my doctor to give me some time to recover, so I did not have to take any prescription medication. I am now having back and chest aches while sleeping. I just ha d a chest, abdomen and pelvis CT scan, and everything is fine thank God. I exercise at least 30 minutes a day, dancing and walking. I do weights, but not as much as I should.
My question is, is anyone here taking medication, prescribed, for osteoporosis? If so, what is the name and side effects?
I remember you telling me that yours is under control with weights and exercising, anything else? I really do not want to have another bone density scan.
