osteoporosis after hysterectomy

I had a complete hyst November 2010. I had taken pempro for many years prior and then diagnosed with early stage uterine cancer (1A/1). No further treatment was nec.

Bone density was great for many years while on hormones.
I went for my bone density scan yesterday and there's osteoporosis in my spine. Never had this while on the hormones.

I want to know if others have experienced this. I work out daily, and put myself on oscal yesterday. I just put a call into my oncologist to see if he would put me back on some kind of hormone treatment. Not too optimistic about that at this point. Waiting to hear from him.

I don't want to take Fosamax because of the side effects.

Anyone else experience this? Thanks for any input. Shirl

Re: osteoporosis after hysterectomy

I took hormones for 7 years and it did not prevent bone loss in me. I have osteopenia which is before osteoporosis. Maybe it kept it from losing too fast or getting osteoporosis, but sometimes we get loss anyway.
I take calcium plus D, magnesium and workout with weights and do lots of walking. The doctor wanted to put me on prescription bone density drugs, but my stomach won't allow it. There is a nose spray you might try that they have,but it made my nose stuffy, but maybe it will work for you. There is an infusion (Reclast) you take once a year so you can avoid any stomach problems, but not sure about it. I would look for reviews online to see who has had it and what they say.

My last bone density was okay no change, so maybe
after a few years it levels out once we get past the first 6 years.

I know weight bearing exercise is suppose to strengthen bones, so I am trying to do more walking and lifting hand weights. Eating calcium foods is also better than supplements so be sure you are getting enough foods with calcium in it like some of the veggies.
