The results are in and I have osteoporosis. It was kinda expected but it’s still something that I have to come to terms with. I could, potentially, have another 40 years of being in pain, which isn’t good but at least I know for certain now why I have been in so much pain. I’ve got to have a blood test to check for calcium and vitamin D levels, but other than that there isn’t any other treatment, well there is but seeing as I’m not over 60, don’t weigh less than 7 stone and don’t have a family history of hip fracture then I don’t fall in the high risk category. If the blood levels are low then I will need to take calcium and vitamin D supplements, along with the pain killers (which he has agreed to put on repeat prescription) which I can live with.
