Do Compression Fractures Of The Vertebrae Really Heal?

Do Compression Fractures Of The Vertebrae Really Heal?

I have been diagnosed with 2 compression fractures one of T7 and L4 over a year ago, T7 still causes me pain especially when I'm on my feet for extended periods of time and when I perform house cleaning jobs such as vacuuming and mopping floors. I work in retail so I have no alternative but to be on my feet for 7 to 8 hours a day. Everything I've read said they should heal within 6 to 8 weeks but I just dont that is my case. Any feed back is welcome!

If You Have Been On Reclast, What Has Been Your Experience?

If You Have Been On Reclast, What Has Been Your Experience?

When I was first diagnosed with osteoporosis 4 years ago, I was prescribed Fosomax. I developed esophagitis from the drug and stopped taking it. Following a wrist fracture and subsequent surgery to repair damage, I was referred to an endocrinologist who prescribed Prolia. I wish I had researched that drug before getting the shot because I was miserable for over 6 months with many adverse side effects. I developed hyperparathyroidism and had surgery which removed 3 and 1/4 parathyroid glands. I… read more

Anyone Using Nutritional Apps On Their Phones To Determine Dietary Calcium (and Other Minerall/vitamin) Intakes?

Anyone Using Nutritional Apps On Their Phones To Determine Dietary Calcium (and Other Minerall/vitamin) Intakes?

Hello - As a software engineer (and a woman with osteoporosis) I am thinking of putting together a phone app which would be helpful to people with osteoporosis. I know there are apps out there which will tell you how much calcium you are getting in your food - wondering if anyone is using them and what you like/don't like about them.

What other sorts of things might a phone app be helpful for with monitoring osteoporosis - maybe setting exercise goals and sending reminders? setting goals… read more
