I have finally got the results from my GP re Dexa scan that I had last year and like he said did they only scan one side?
AP Spine(L1-L4) -2.9 osteoporotic
Femoral neck (left) -2.8 osteoporotic
total hip (left) -1.8 osteopenic
They have put lifestyle advice as avoid smoking (I never have) excess alcohol (I don't drink) take regular weight bearing exercise I have walked reasonable distances all of my life I still manage 4 miles a couple of times a week sometimes more. The recommended blood tests that the rheumy did ESR, 9 CPR normal, Calcium normal, Vit D normal, and a thyroid test which I can't remember the full name but my doctor said it was normal.
My GP has agreed to my having denusomab if I want it has anyone got any gen on it? The main thing now as far as I am concerned is to get off of steroids I am on 8 1/2 at the moment, I am not happy with it but I have tried to reduce quickly as I was on 5 before the nasty water infection that I had which knocked me for 6 but it didn't work. We are going away on the 12th July for a week so I want to feel well then and when we come back I have a colonoscopy to look forward too after that its serious steroid reduction. I feel as if the PMR has receded (dare I say it) Wendy
