Hi everyone, after trying 1 tablet of Alendronic Acid and feeling awful, my doctor agreed to refer me for a Dexa scan (at my request) to see if I needed it. My local hospital has a waiting list to get onto the waiting list!!!! and the next nearest hospital is an average of 18 weeks to be seen.
I have booked myself a Dexa scan in London at an imaging clinic in Winpole Street at the cost of £65 plus train fare of around £40 and I get it done a week this Thursday with results same/next day. It sounds worthwhile to me, hopefully I’ve got good bones and will be able to manage without Alendronic A. Will let you all know how it goes
