I was diagnosed with 2 vertebral fractures (grade 2 superior endplate fracture) in Dec 2021 after osteoporosis showed up on my DEXA scan in 2020. I am scheduled to have the first of 3 annual zoledronic acid infusion in mid-Feb.
I just wondered if anyone on here has had a similar experience? My back is not bothering me that much, although (ironically) it is causing me more discomfort since I stopped exercising (pilates and bootcamp). Is it ever going to heal?
Also, does anyone know much about Romosozumab? I know it is only available privately but the fact that it can heal as well as prevent further deterioration is very appealing. I am starting to feel like an invalid (I am 49) and pretty miserable.
I am taking plenty of calcium and vitamin D. I had an early menopause during cancer treatment in 2015/2016, T scores recovered between 2016 and 2018 but then fell between 2018 and 2020. My GP has now prescribed HRT for me at my request. Even though I don't want to take it, I thought it might help and I am desperate.
