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.
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.
He he, I see what you mean now. Must admit I havent found that xx
I must have a look at mine, I have never heard of Sorbitol, no wonder I have had so much energy today in the garden 🙂 :}
Hope you are well xx
I wonder sometimes if there is someone there with a warped sense of humour who sends these letters out on a Friday!!
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.
