Total Vaginal Hysterectomy in March and four Fractures since July

I have had four fractured Ribs since July.

I was taking Premarin at the recommended dose but still experiencing Hot Flushes so after blood results stating my Oestrodiol was still low my GP increased it by half again.

I was Osteoporotic but my levels have improved by 13% upto Osteopenia but I'm still fracturing and in terrible pain and my pain-management Doc has me on 700mg Morphine daily.

I am by now very worried and sick of all this and wonder if anyone else has experienced fractures.

Bionic - I haven't expereinced this. I just came along to offer you hugs and I hope someone with more info can help. I'm sorry you are going through this. It doesn't seem like fun!

I'll be interested to hear the responses as my Dr said I am at high risk for Osteoporosis due to my body structure, weight etc.

Hugs,

Did you experience bone loss/problems prior to your surgery? I am so sorry......rib fractures are very painful. I think I would be asking the doc to order some CT scans/MRI of the ribs, if you haven't already..................just to be certain there is nothing else going on in there.

I am sending comforting s your way, as well. Take care......................Deb

Thanks Girls

I've fractured a finger a couple of times but nothing as bad as this.

I had an Echocardiogram today and whilst she was perfvorming it she heard a 'Crack' Yikes I hope it's not another gone.

I see my Osteoporosis Dr next week so I'll see what he thinks and let you know.

Best Wishes for a Happy Healthy New Year

(((Bionic))) - I'm so sorry you're going through all of this. I worry about osteoporosis, as my mother suffers from it. I sure hope your doctors are able to help. Please do keep us posted.

Seems to me there is a link between estrogen levels and bone density, if I remember correctly.

Before going into the CT scan/MRI, you might want to ask for a bone density scan. It might be a type of MRI - but holy cow, get that checked!


How's your calcium/magnesium/Vit D intake??? (calcium needs help to be absorbed.

Good luck!
