i'm new on this forum. i was just diagnosed with osteoporosis and i'm 58 years old. i had an mri that showed 3 compression fractures, t12, l2 , l3.
i've heard so many horror stories about the meds they prescribe for osteoporosis but i'm afraid that i might be at the point where i need to take something. my spine shows 4.7 from standard deviation and my femur is 3.6.
since i just recently had the mri showing the compression fractures, i am afraid to make a move.
does anyone have any recommendations for me? i'm so scaredosteoporosis and spinal fractureswhat you need to know about osteoporosis
