Taking alendronic acid well, no problems, for just over 20 years, with a 1 yr long break, a few yrs ago. Then dexa showed density decline so put back on it. Both mother and aunt had total spinal collapse long over a decade of their latter years, and sister with it too.
I am upright and looking ok at 68, nothing like my family at this age, although I also have osteoarthritis, with no cartilage left in either knee now, working bone on bone, with high pain threshold that both blesses and curses. I have avoided knee replacements for what may seem obvious reasons. However, I try to just do each day, and enjoy it, while not letting tomorrow's potential spoil it.
Sadly, I've had 2 big back teeth fall apart during Covid19 lockdown, both mostly amalgamate filled. I'm not rushing to dentist, or anywhere at present, but feel that I should contact my consultant before any other practitioner. I don't feel my dentist should try any further work or repair until MRI, or other tests can show that my jaw is not at risk now.
Any advice, thoughts, comments will be appreciated.
