I went for a DEXA Scan yesterday. When it was finished I asked the operator if she had the results. She said they had to be checked by the radiologist and then sent to the rheumatologist. I pressed her to give me the results unofficially and to my utter relief she said "You Do Not Have Osteoporosis!" I am so relieved. I have spent the last few weeks worrying about my spine disintegrating. I nursed my Mother through several crush fractures of her spine so my fears were not groundless.
I have an appointment with the rheumatologist next month and maybe he will have some ideas as to what caused the insufficiency fracture in my hip, but in the meantime I am happy that the rest of my bones seem reasonably sound.
