surgery even with an osteoporosis diagnosis
Has anyone had surgery even though they've had an osteoporosis diagnosis? If so, was surgery successful? I had to postpone neck surgery due to a T-score of -3.7 on my latest DEXA scan. Surgeon is fearful of a failed surgery, if my bones aren't strong enough to hold the pins. I thought I read somewhere of someone who had multiple successful surgeries even with a T-score of -5.8. Surgeon wants me on Forteo, but after reading and researching about the side effects, I'm VERY hesitant about going on it.
