Hi everyone. I haven’t posted very much lately because I have been healing from a shattered ankle!
I broke it in March, and had surgury and harware put in on both sides. 8 weeks later I am finally walking wihout an assisted device, and it will take another 4 months to get my foot back to almost normal. I found out last weekend that my Dr. was worried about my healing at all because of my Osteoporosis.
In the past two years I’ve put my back out twice, fractured a rib, fractured an elbow, and now my ankle. I don’t tell you this to complain, but to remind you how serious Osteoporosis really is. I am not 70, I am 50. I am not unhealthy, this is genetic. We only figured out the Osteoporosis because my Mom had it so badly, we decided to test at such a young age just in case.
So after loading up on calcium I was cleared to start Proleia in March. Didn’t get to take it until April because of my fall. It takes 3 years for the Proleia to reverse the Osteoporosis. I am praying I don’t break my hip before then.
Please Please Please take Osteoporosis seriously and find a way to fight it with everything you have. Exercise and medicine are both very important! Your ability to walk (and therfore your ability to live independently) is on the line!
