sweetsusie told me about HRT for osteoporosis sufferers (thank you @sweetsusie!!). I'm only 46 and I really think the standard first course of action (biphosonates) is potentially too much - or rather - the side effects could be devastating. I have a stressful job, busy leisure time, sporty, love travelling - that's all going to be wrecked if I get the bad potential side effects.
So far, I've not had a lengthy discussion with my specialist - I only said I was open to treatment on Friday last week - that is to come. Of course, she just mentioned biphosphonates & Prolia at this stage saying I should look into it and have a think about what I want to do.
I want to ask her about HRT - don't know if it's prescribed for OP treatment here in the Netherlands, but I'd like to speak to her with some experiences. I've done some research and I know that it IS prescribed for women my age who no longer mentstruate (I stopped about 20 years ago - hence OP now! - because my body fat % is too low, essentially).
So, experiences would be great, especially if your DEXA results showed improvement.
