First: Best wishes everyone for 2019.
Regarding my post of a couple of months ago, I received the results of my MRI scan in the post on Friday. It said –
“The scan demonstrates an insufficiency fracture of the pelvis; this is essentially a hairline fracture, which is a subtle crack in the bone, which affects both the back and the front of your pelvis. This is definitely the reason for your pain”
It goes on to mention the treatments available should I still be in pain. I’m not though, the pain stopped almost as suddenly as it started!
Does this mean I definitely have osteoporosis? Given that I took a bisphosphonate (Didronel) for around 7 years, stopping 15 years ago when I did NOT have osteoporosis could this be something to do with it? The stuff after all seems to stay in your system forever!
Or – should I consider taking AA or the like again.
When I was first diagnosed the rheumatologist advised my GP to prescribe a bisphosphonate as a preventative. (My GP told me I didn’t need a bone density test) I tried taking it, but it made me very ill, so I stopped. My GP knows I am not taking it, but I don’t think the rheumatologist knows. (I haven’t seen him since I was diagnosed, only the nurse specialist)
I would be very grateful for any advice. I want to be as informed as possible before I see my GP.
