Good luck with your meeting with the specialist. May I suggest that you record this very important meeting on your cell. Just ask the specalalist of that is ok. I found in my meetings with my NS, that I would get distracted with all the discussion that I would forget to write things down. So I would record meetings and then I could refer back to the recordings.

I haven't had a bone density test done in 25 yrs. In researching into this disease, osteopenia can be caused by a med for brain tumour – successfully removed 2 yrs ago – dilantin.
