Topics I've Started

Osteoporosis Medications And Celiacs

30 January 2015 - 05:58 PM

I have been away from these forums for awhile . When this issue came up I decided to come back to these forums looking for help from those who I knew would understand . :)

 

 

I am 58 years old , a diagnosed celiac ,I was diagnosised with  osteoporosis 8 years ago. 

The past few times my doc mentioned osteoporosis meds I blew it off,, thinking I had time ,,but now I am not sure I have time to delay any longer.

I have two compression fractures in my spine , the origin being my osteoporosis.

 

My DEXA scan is in Feb and then a follow up after with my doc, pretty sure the main topic of that visit is going to be medications for my osteoporosis ..

 

Those of you dealing with this issue ,,how are you managing your osteoporosis ??medications??


Old Account

25 January 2015 - 03:08 PM

 I have not been active in these forums for about the last year. When I tried to log in I could not find my account . ( so I created a new one.)

 

My question is ; after being inactive for a period of time are accounts deleted ? or could I just not find my old account ?

Thanks


Full Knee Replacement ,,,

04 May 2014 - 08:15 AM

My orthopedist is a very patient man .

 

I saw him last summer he says full knee replacement I say no way, he says come back in 3 months .

 

I go back in three months , he says full knee replacement this the only thing that will work , I say no way, he says come back in 3 months .

 

I cancel that appt ( bad me lol ) but I finally go back to see him last Thursday .

 

He puts up the x-ray from 6 months ago and the one I had Thursday side by side , he and I look at them then he turns and looks at me and says "well??? "

 

Did I monition he is a very patient man .

 

The deterioration of the knee is very obvious to even me :(

 

I say ( a bunch of  4 letter words ,,under my breath of course :rolleyes: ,lol) looks like I need to wrestle with my insurance co .

 

One full knee replacement coming up <_<

 

 

I have osteoarthritis &  osteoporosis . The midiscus  is  gone and it is bone on bone .The pain is off the scale :wacko:

 

I made the mistake of looking up what / how they do a full knee replacement :ph34r:

 

This surgery scares me :unsure:

 

Being in the hosp ( doc says 4 - 6 days) dealing with all that entails is just plain overwhelming  :unsure:

 

Then the weeks of rehab / recovery time :blink:

 

Has anyone had this type of surgery ? how did you make out?  are you glad you did it?
