One doctor said I am considered to have osteoporosis because of the fractures. Is this true?
I have 6 compression fractures in T12 to L5. I fractured them in December bending over opening a tv tray. Does anyone know how long it takes to heal? It still feels like my vertebra are crushing when I stand!
I have osteoporosis,and I am happy to say I have not had any broken bones! My bone density test show my 60 year old bones are like that of an 80+ year old women.However I am in pain every day, my knees,hips
,back and hands hurt the most. But my doctors say there is no pain with osteoporosis until you have a fracture or break. And X-rays have not shown much arthritis. How "much" do I need to have for them to explain the pain I have? Have any of you had pain without fracture or arthritis?
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!
I refused bone meds out of fear of side effects and have suffered four vertebral fractures and scoliosis. I am miserable and now my oncologist says they probably can’t be fixed by Kyphoplasty because I have discs involved. But I need an MRI and to see a neurosurgeon. I’ve been in a recliner for seven months and I feel my life is over. Can anyone relate or help me?
I’m recovering from a stress fracture in my left femur. I had an injection of Prolia shortly before diagnosis, and was told that would slow down healing since the drug slows down bone turnover in general. Perhaps a “bone stimulator” would help?
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.
I had been taking Forteo injections for two years and did have an increase in my T-score, especially the hip area. Then once off for a few months for some dental work before starting Prolia, I fell and broke my hip. Now I experience anxiety, experience thigh pain when I am up for an extended period of time.
Has anyone else ever had a fracture while on treatment?
