What does a bone scan tell me.

What does a bone scan tell me.

When you get a bone scan, the test only evaluates your pelvic area. If my score shows serious bone loss, is it like that in my chest, leg and arm bones too.

Medication

Medication

Have had Osteo for a long time. Went on a trial with Loma Linda U for medication when it first came out. Started having trouble with my jaw, my dentist took me off the Meds , I forget the name Evista? Then the nose bleeds started, at any given time I would start
heavy bleeding from my right or left nostril. My doctor now put me on Fosteum Plus, I have been taking it for a year, just recently started bleeding from the nose again, this happens without warning. Any suggestions on how I can fight Osteo?… read more

What can I do to help recover from a serious fractured femur surgery that involves the hip?

I had surgery last February for a fractured femur. The fracture was close to the hip and now one leg is shorter than the other and the limping is affecting the other hip. I still have quite a bit of pain and am not experiencing getting better.

Fortes injections

Fortes injections

My Endocrinologist wants me to take Forteo for 2 years by injection everyday as a bone builder. I am eligible through the Government as I had A femoral fracture due to the medication I was taking. My Doctor has to make application on my behalf to put me on the program. Side effects dizziness, leg cramps, soreness due to the injections. I would like your input on this program. Thank you.
