@lioness, Thank you for your good wishes and reassurance.
I'd had my Dexa scan in Aug before being told that after 5 yrs of being on Reclast, I needed to take a yr vacation from the infusion. Hadn't known before about that and was caught off guard and left feeling very vulnerable after being on bone meds so long.
The visit did go well. The endo was engaging, took time to answer my questions and responded to my concerns. Unfortunately, she said studies of additional supplements, which I was hoping for, had not shown any bone improvement. That was a big disappointment because much is being written about adding things like magnesiium, vit k, etc to what I already take: Vit D3, calcium, and fish oil.
She wants to schedule a Cortisol study in a couple of months before making any changes to what I am doing. She told me to stop for two months the prescribed appetite enhancer, which I'd just received on Sat! yuck! along with two of the COPD meds because they contain steroids. Now I need to read more about Cotisol and what she thinks that lab work may reveal.
