I’m on another forum and stumble across this one which I’m so pleased. I had a major operation last May and pre op, I acquired sarcopenia, Kyphosis and Osteoporosis with multiple spinal fractures. I was prescribed Alendronic acid pre op but it made me feel very queasy so I stopped taking it as I hated feeling nauseous all the time. Post op, I was advised to re take it which I didn’t as I was too frightened of that experience again. It was the only drug I was paranoid of taking.
I slowly built myself up from wheel chair to walking almost every day (circumstances pending). I walk between 2 miles - 6 miles most days with a Walker due to my back and cataracts which has enabled me to build up my strength and muscle mass again. I’m almost straight but will never get back my lost 4” in height which I accept.
I’m almost there and feel I just need that one more big step to stand upright again. . I walk around the house with no Walker or stick, can walk very short distances with no stick. Can anyone suggest any form of safe exercise? I don’t want to become reliant on one of those back braces. I’m due to see a Rheumatologist at some point but that could be a while yet. Yoga? Pilates? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
