Hi ,about a month ago I had a dexa scan because I had a bad fall and broke both bones in my wrist .I was offered surgery which I rejected as I was off to Lapland the following Friday.Bit silly you might say but the guy who put my cast on reckoned that a lot of surgery is unnecessary.Well I went off in a cast up to my armpit and although in pain had a fantastic time .Did every trip and every adventure I’d booked.
I healed well and the cast was off within 6 weeks and I’m nearly back to full mobility.Anyway I was waiting for the results of my scan and was phoned on Wednesday afternoon by what I thought was a doctor who casually informed me that I’d lost bone density ( didn’t give me a result) and suggested that I started on AA .Id not heard of it and said ok ,even though after he’d described the carry on for taking it a bit of a faff ,
Then I googled it ! Well I’m so glad that I did ! I phoned the surgery back and asked which doctor had called me and they informed me that it wasn’t doctor it was George the Pharmacist!
Well George you’ve just prescribed AA to a 60 year old woman with periodontal disease you idiot .The receptionist casually told me that it said that I was to be told to visit my dentist before starting the meds but I wasn’t .I can’t believe that I was given my diagnosis and offered this poison from a pharmacist.
I don’t even know my score yet and have made an appointment to see a doctor next a Tuesday .I must say that I’m in a bit of a state about it as I’m a fit healthy person ,walk several miles a day and have only had one broken bone ( well two ) ever .
I’ve stated taking care of my diet and taking vitamin C and D supliments.I don’t want to take The alendronic acid .Im hoping there’s a safer alternative.Thanks for listening and after listening to your advice I will be more careful about things in the future.
