Hope you've all survived the Christmas festivities and had a lovely time!.
Just thought I'd share this piece of good news I've had from fracture clinic. My three month check XRay has shown my foot has fully healed and new bone has formed!. This is particularly good because I 've taken daily steroids for years with calcium and bone strengthening treatment and developed mild osteoporosis as well!.My foot healed within the usual six weeks and the doctor said I'd done very well which pleased me greatly!.
The point of my post is to say that I know steroids come with worrying side effects , bone loss being one , but with the right management and treatment we don't have to suffer unduly from something that's so necessary to keep our symptoms at bay!. Hope some reassurance for newly diagnosed forum members!.
Happy New Year everyone. I hope it's a healthier year for us all.
