Does anyone else suffer from osteoporosis and PV - diagnosed with osteoporosis 3 years ago at the age of 51 and with PV 2.5 years ago at the age of 52. I am taking aspirin and hydroxy (1,000 a day) with venesection about every 3 months (only started hydroxy in oct 2014 when platelets reach 1.2 million and blood level not controlled by venesection alone).
Taking fosamax for osteoporosis but recently diagnosed with 3 wedge fractures in thorasic spine!
Has anyone had kyphoplasty for spine fractures? Has anyone been recommended to take teriparatide (Forsteo) at the same time as taking hydroxy? Not sure if there is any problem taking both drugs. Will see hemotologist later this week but interested if anyone else has had similar experience as all of this is stressing me out - blood problems and bone problems!
