Surgery and Osteoporosis

Posted on June 04, 2018

Your doctors may recommend surgery, but it can be a scary decision. There is a lot to know about preparing for surgery and recovery. Waking up after surgery can be disorienting. There may be pain that needs to be managed. Many people find that knowing what to expect can make the recovery easier.

On MyOsteoTeam, the social network and online support group for those living osteoporosis, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Surgery is one of the top topics most discussed.

Here are some conversations about surgery:

Found out 5 months ago that I had osteoporosis when I developed compression fractures in 3 vertebrae and a near complete spinal cord compression. Underwent surgery and I am doing physio, exercise, walking as much as I can and the exercise bike.

After having kyphoplasty surgery for fractured vertebrae I still have pain. Has anyone else had that done?

Recuperating from hip joint replacement surgery. Plan to ask my PCP about osteoporosis medication.

I've was diagnosed with osteoporosis over 10 years ago. I've had vertebroplasty because of fractures of the vertebrae.

Can you relate?
