I wrote a post a few weeks ago about going to the Renal Bone Clinic. My appointment was today. I have been told that i have Osteopenia at the spine and hip due to the steroids I have been taking since 1998. I had been getting a lot of pain in my right hip, so I had an x ray today. Since my Transplant in 2010 my legs have been getting worse. I have been prescribed Alendronate to take once a week. I was shown the scan results and there is a curve at the bottom of my spine. The doctor said osteopenia is one step away from osteoporosis, which i wasn't happy about. Having Lupus does not help either as it is also one of the causes. Has anyone been diagnosed with osteopenia due to transplant or steroids. i would love to hear from you.
