Re: Bone scan has revealed osteoporosis

Hi.  I was also diagnosed with osteoporosis after bone scan. I was changed to Tamoxifen because it is supposed to be 'kinder' to the bones.  I have been on it for three and a half years now but apart from hot flushes and mild joint pains it hasn't been too bad.  You will probably also be prescibed AdCal and weekly Alendronic Acid tablet for the Osteoporosis. I couldn't tolerate the weely tablet so I now have a yearly infusion at my local hospital.

Good luck x

Hi blossom64

 

Whilst you are waiting for the other users to reply with their experiences if you would like to talk things through do give the BCC helpline a call on 0808 800 6000.  Here you can share your thoughts and concerns with someone who will offer you a listening ear as well as emotional support and practical information. Lines are open weekdays 9 to 5pm and Saturday 10 to 2pm.

Bone scan has revealed osteoporosis

Saw my oncologist today following Rads and was just a check on the pink boob and checking in my letrozole side effects which I explained I am learning to live with. But she then told me following my bone scan I have osteoporosis so now going onto another tablet. Anyone else had the same x
