I am a female with very severe Osteoporosis, my T scores are - 4.6 in the spine and - 4.2 in the hip.
I am now 65years of age and was diagnosed when I was 49 with osteopenia.
I have had treatment with Bisphosphonates, Forsteo, Raloxafine and Prolia.
I have 4 spinal fractures, one of which occurred 8 years ago, I then had 2 more 1 in May 2017 and 1 in June 2017 my more recent one was in January 2019. These have happened without any trauma and whilst on treatments.
My journey with Osteoporosis has been, and is a painfull one, it is filled with frustration and indecision.
I am one of the unfortunate people who have and are suffering the side effects that the treatments have brought with them.
The last 3 fractures have disabled me and the most recent one has put me in a wheelchair and made me dependent on my husband and family for most of my needs.
I have wanted to share my experiences with others for some time now and also hear from others about their experiences, both with the treatments for Osteoporosis and fractures of the spine, and the problems that arise.
