A little creaky, but good news

Hi everyone.

Just wanted to thank you all for your good wishes and prayers for my annual mammography and baseline bone density scan.

The mammo was normal, and the bone density test only showed mild osteoporosis. The wants to see me to talk about going on Fosamax. Hmmm..maybe he'll tell me to start eating lots of cheese and other neat dairy stuff like that...and then next year he'll be yelling at me for high cholesterol.

So, I guess the bones are getting creaky but with the sudden onslaught of menopause following my TAH BSO four years ago, that's not a surprise, and it's a small price to pay for evicting that endo cancer.

Thanks again!

Hi Marlene,

Glad to hear your tests were good.

Those creaks just get louder as we get older. Fix one thing, flare up another, who knows...

Just very glad to hear things are well for you. Continued good reports.

Good News!

Healthy breasts and Fosamax...mild osteoporosis--you're doing well. A dad creaky, indeed, but doing well.

Yep, my diagnoses are mounting too...arthritis...diverticulitis... asthma.....but it's all a small price to pay for being cancer free.

I can do all those thing....just don't ask me to do chemo again!! Of course, I would do that too if it meant more time with my family!!

I can do anything...cause I'm a WOMAN!!!!!!!!

Glad to hear that the mammogram (or squish-o-gram as I call it) was normal. That's wonderful news.

If I remember correctly from my Nutrition class, milk, cheese, yogurt, greens, broccoli, sardines, canned salmon with bones, dried beans and peas, and tofu are calcium-rich foods. There's also calcium-fortified orange juice. These are great ways to boost your calcium intake. It's also important to get an adequate amount of Vitamin D because that helps your body absorb and metabolize calcium.

Wow...I remembered some things...that Ginko Boloba really works!!

Marl...great job on those tests. Keep up the good work. Thanks for your support here, too. You always have wonderful. spiritual things to say...and I feel comforted by your responses.

Congrats on the good mammo Marlene. Whooppee. Cheese doesn't sound so bad for the creakiness! It's one of my weaknesses!

that is good news. Maybe you could eats lot's of ice cream!My mom has taken Fosomax for years and it keeps her osteoporisis in check. I probably need to get checked too. My Dr acts like I won't be around long to worry about anything but cancer!

Sounds like a good report overall, Marl!

I just had my first bone density test in January. My surgery was in April of last year and the doctor wanted to establish a baseline. So soon after my surgery, the results were still normal for a woman my age (46). So, I'm taking calcium supplements and vitamin D (when I remember). The other part of the suggestion that I haven't taken yet... is exercise. Specifically, weight training exercise and walking. Sometimes I think, how much more can I do in one day?!

Well, in my case, as it is in so many of our cases, a matter of priorities. Sooner or later, I'll get my priorities in order.

Oh, and my bones, they've been creaking (especially the knees) for years! It's all "maintenance", isn't it? lol.

Hi Marlene,

Glad to hear that you got good results on your tests.

I also vote for cheese however, even though my bone density test was good, my doctor has me taking calcium with vitamin D.

I found yummy chocolate chewy ones as I am not a pill taker.
