I am 68 years old and new here. I have osteoporosis in the neck of my right hip. I am a bit overwhelmed and fearful of osteoporosis. I have been diagnosed with Vitamin d deficiency and abnormal parathyroid. My doctor put me on 15000iu of Vitamin D3. I will do that for a month. Then he will check my blood levels. Then he wants me to go reclast for my osteoporosis.
Is there any other way to build bone density and reverse osteoporosis than using pharmaceuticals? It seems hip surgeries are fairly routine and people recover easily. Is this true for people with osteoporosis? Would it be better to eventually have hip surgery and not take the pharmaceuticals with side effects. As you can see I am in a quandary and would appreciate any of your insight. Thank you
