So yesterday my husband tells me that I need to walk more!! This is because I had a bone density scan recently and my hips aren't as solid as they should be, but they're not oestoperousis either. (Sorry about the spelling). I had the scan as I've been taking femera as I had breast cancer five years ago and I shall stop taking that in June.
The Dr after the scan explained that you need to move for the bones to absorb the calcium and as I obviously don't walk very much, that would be a factor of weakened bones. The rest of my bones are fine - it's just my pelvis.
Then today the physiotherapist said I shouldn't think of walking as an exercise in my normal life - which I do.
I feel like none of them realise just how difficult it is to keep walking. Just the action of walking is so difficult, let alone the balance problems too! I hate walking but I'm continuing to exercise and walk as much as I can as I realise how things become very limited when you are stuck in a wheelchair full time. I do have a power assisted wheelchair which I use to go out.
I'm fed up and feel that nobody understands!
I'm sure many of you on this site do
Sorry just wanted to reach out to someone who understands.
