Hi, I have had my telephone follow up appointment, ( for those of you who don't know, my clinic one was cancelled )
I have been told, that because of the current situation with Covid-19 it is not worth the risk to my health to bring me back to clinic for another six months. I will have a face to face appointment and my scans and x rays in March next year.
The six month delay and the comment that "I need a new back" has left me wondering is this their way of telling me that they can no longer help me.
For some time now I have asked myself is it actually worth it, putting up with side effects and feeling generally unwell after being put on one treatment after another, then going on to have 6 spinal fractures without trauma.
If I have the Zoledronic acid infusions I can not now see any possible benefit to me. My bone density is so low, and probably even lower now because of not having any further treatment after the prolia injection
In six moths time I will not have received any treatment for over 2 years.
I do not see the Zoledronic acid infusion as a miracle cure, my bones will never recover what's lost and I do not believe that the bone loss would be slowed down enough to make a significant difference.
Even though I know I am in a bad situation with my back it has left me feeling rather deflated.
Perhaps my best option now is to start looking into the possibility of getting a "New Back" from China, after all that is where everything else is made, and if they can produce something as big as Covid-19 then making a new back for me would be a very dimple task !!!
