Re: Dexa Scan results

In case it's of any help, I had my baseline Dexa scan in the summer of 2015 and the result was that I was "at moderate risk of developing osteoporosis".  It wasn't suggested that I take any supplements, which I believe is because I am a long-time taker of high strength cod liver oil capsules (10+ years) and I am scheduled to have another scan this year - don't know when though as my GP says they're running behind!

Thanks.  I'm now making a list of what to speak about, because I'm bound to forget something.

You can still ask your GP to refer you, you will need to say the reason for it is because of your bc and the hormone blocker tablets you are on.

Re: Dexa Scan results

I didn't have a Dexa scan, and I wonder why, being on Letrozole and Ibandronic acid.

I'm off to the GP tomorrow because I've losing the feeling in my fingers on my cancer side.

Re: Dexa Scan results

Helena,
Precisely!
I've decided not to worry and just see what happens on Monday.
The words "slightly diminished " sound sort of ok.....hopefully. ....xx

I wonder sometimes if there is someone there with a warped sense of humour who sends these letters out on a Friday!!

Re: Dexa Scan results

Thanks Helena

I will book an appointment to see my GP.
As ever when a letter arrives on Friday afternoon we have to wait until Monday to establish the facts.

Have a good weekend xx

Mine came back as the low end of normal.  Your GP will just go through the report with you and the recommendations made.  Mine were to ensure I took regular exercise, take vit d and calcium supplement.  I have a chewy tablet which combines the both twice a day.  They also recommended that as I was on a hormone blocking tablet to have it repeated every two years instead of 3.

 

I take the tablet morning and evening.

Dexa Scan results

I've just had a letter with the results of my Dexa scan.

It says I have "slightly diminished bone density" and to contact my GP for treatment recommendations.

Guessing this means I am at risk of developing osteoporosis as I am taking Letrozole.

Has anyone had a similar result or from experience, interpret what this is likely to mean in terms of treatment?

Many Thanks
