No improvement in Dexascan after 11 months on Evenity
I'm scanning these posts and can't find results like mine. I'm a 57 year old marathon runner who had parathyroid disease diagnosed and surgery removing 2.5 glands(could only find 3 glands)in 2019. By the time of that diagnosis, I had several stress fractures in my legs and arm over 10 years with blood Ca up to 10.6 (my internist missed this).
My endocrinologist waited to see my dexascan results for a year after my surgery before starting Evenity. I just got my last set of shots today but my dexascan yesterday showed no improvement in lumbar spine -2.9, or femur -2.3, TBS =1.264 and a loss in my arm now -2.9 (0.721 last year, 0.623 yesterday).
I see my endocrinologist at the end of the month for my next steps. This is not what I was expecting. I am very active and make concerted efforts daily to get miles of weight bearing exercise (either walking or running). I have always been healthy weight and a vegetarian who loves her dairy products.
I had no issues getting the Evenity. Had occasional swelling at the sites on my arms but not every month. I am shocked to see I had no response and wonder if there are others out there?
