So I had my follow up phone call with my doc this morning to discuss my recent rheumy appointment. She agreed to give me a copy of his letter as I haven’t received it yet (and never received the last one despite asking). Result.
She also agreed that a slow taper would be more beneficial than a quick one and now have 1mg on repeat prescription. Result.
But, she wasn’t entirely happy about me not taking the Risedronate. We spoke about my Dexa scan that I had last October. I thought the result was OK. Or did I simply take her non commital hmm at the time of her looking for it last year as a yes? Who knows. It isn’t on the system. Or hasn’t come through to my doctors practice. So she is investigating. I told her my hesitation at taking something that would probably add to my already severe digestive problems (I have a liver disease that affects my bile ducts) so she said I could consider having a twice yearly injection instead.
Has anyone had this or have any thoughts/ info on whether this would be better? I want to be able to make a considered decision if the Dexa scan results are poor. Many thanks.
