Since you all were so kind to board the pink bus with me last Monday, I thought I would let you all know the results of the tests. The good news first --- the gyno and the ultra sound all came back negative. Yippee!!!!! Now, the not so good news. My DEXA Scan was not good at all. I've been diagnosed with osteoporosis of the lumbar spine. My Vitamin D levels were at 17 - very low. So now my onc has referred me to the Mineral Metabolism dept for a complete workup and evaluation. She says we have to get this addressed! I am not sure what all of this will entail, but I'm not liking any of this. I am waiting for a call to set up the appointment for the initial evaluaiton. Have any of you had this after radiation?
Yesterday I started on my five year journey with tamoxifen. So far so good. No SE, but then again I don't know how long it takes ,if you are going to have SE, for them to show up. I'm guessing it probably takes longer than two days.
