This also means that my bones will take longer to heal - another patience lesson!
My doctor yesterday gave me several options for medication, and of course I take my calcium with D and Magnesium religiously. I also do aerobic exercise and weight-bearing exercises.
The most disappointing thing I heard yesterday was, "Yes, you are at an increased risk of fractures, so you are going to need to be careful with your activities." No way, no way. I am 54 years old, and I will not wrap myself in bubble-wrap. I have no plans to sky dive or parasail, but I will live an active life (and wear a helmet when on my bike) - as soon as these bones heal!
