Going To The Ortho Doc In Afternoon

Recommended Posts

Ok, most of ya'll know that I broke my foot March 20th, and I have had to continue to ware my boot cast because I have been slow to heal. I am going to the Ortho Doc tommarrow afternoon, I am not so sure that I will be able to come out of it yet because I have been hurting a little still. I don't want to end up having surgery on my foot, my doc told me that he did not want to do surgery because the pin would just brake anyway because I have such small bones in my feet. I have been pushing him to do a bone density test, he does not seem to think that I am in need of one but last time he said that he will have me set up for one. I have been taking my vitamins calcuim and all, should this be enough to help my bone to heal or do I need more.

The only advice I can offer is to be extra careful about gluten because you can't afford any time of not absorbing your calcium if you have a bone healing.

You are getting 1500-2000 mg of Calcium + magnesium and vitamin D, yes?

:D I am free of my boot cast I am soooooooo happy. :D I was worried with my foot because it has been hurting some the last few days, I don't know if it is because of the weather which Karen you know if you are any where in Texas with all this rain that we have had is really humid right now with more rain in the forecast but anyway. Or it could because of my boot I think that it had, had it the top strap was not holding itself in place the metal, and the cloth was not staying upright it was turning horizontal making it loose while walking and so I was tensing my foot which is possibly why I am currantly hurting. So any way I have my bone density test schedualed for Thursday morning, My doc finally gave in to my insisting on having, only because I have repeatedly broken my foot. He says insurance won't frown on that since how I am not at the age of menopause. And he gave a prescription, and samples for Celebrex, and Nexium, I don't think that I will use the Celebrex. I am not sure if that the Celebrex is ok first of all and I really don't want to take anything, and I might use the Nexium when I have and heartburn is this one safe too. But for now I will have to get used to walking in a normal shoe, because it has been 3 1/2 months since I had broken my foot.

As far as my Calcium intake I am taking it but does not have any Magnesuim and it is only 500, I am about out so I will indeed find some more with the Mag in it. I am also out of Omega too, I have seen a differance in my energy level when I am taking my Vits from when I don't, big differance. I think that my Multi vit has vit D in it. So is there any other kind of supplements that I need to taking, I have the Multi with vit C, Calcuim, and was taking Omega 3 until I ran out only bouight one bottle of that.

OMG, we're about to grow gills with all the rain in Texas. And yes, rainy weather does make a broken bone hurt more. I broke my wrist 2 years ago and a bone in my foot about 15 years ago so I have a built in weather detector. I used to think it was just a geezer thing, but it's true (that it hurts, not that I'm a geezer :-)

It's important for women to get their calcium because your body uses it to help regulate estrogen and critical body functions. No free calcium available and your body pulls it from bones. Also, magnesium is important because your body can't absorb the calcium without it. That's why straight calcium will constipate.

I didn't trust Celebrex and found just as good a level of relief from Ecotrin (coated aspirin) but everyone is different where pain relievers are concerned. I have found that the Turmeric and fish oil I take for my arthritis has also helped my wrist (being a newer break, it's more reactive). They act as anti-inflamatories though not as pain relievers.

I'm not an old geezer either but ever since I had Ankle surgery when I was 14 or 15 yrs old I could feel the wheather in my foot a little, when I broke my foot almost 2 yrs after that, my foot hurt alot during wheather changes.

The Celebrex and Nexium I had filled at walgreens but I have not picked them up because I don't think that I needed that bad the cost with insurance together was $59.00 I said I'll come back for them. I'll stick to my trusty Tylenol, that works the best for me. When I broke my foot they gave my Hydrocodone all that did for me was make me sleepy the pain just stayed until I took my Tylenol and the pain went away. That is the only thing that works for me. Regulat Asprin really hurts my tummy, Motrin, advil, doesnot touch anything. Aleve works alittle and one time I wanted to see what the female type stuff would do, sorry cant think of any because I dont buy the stuff because that did do anything for me.

Hi--Taking Nexium, or any of the antacid anti-GERD meds, will make it harder to digest your calcium supplements. I finally quit taking Prevacid and now I just take a digestive enzyme with meals. Also calcium citrate is easier to absorb than calcium carbonate, and you definitely need the magnesium and vitamin D.

Celiacs should be referred for a bone scan after diagnosis, regardless of age.
