Morning everyone, its a dreary cool day in Texas but I will take it over the 100 plus degree weather we have been having, lol. Its just the dampness makes the bones hurt.
This is a bit off the topic but something I want to put out here for the people that have osteoporosis. Several weeks ago my PM dr asked me about the medication I am on for osteoporosis and I told her what it was. She asked me to bring in a copy of my Bone Density test. She was telling me there is only one drug for osteopororis that is FDA approved that will rebuild bone mass. I told her I knew what I was using would not cure it or anything along those lines, the hope is it will slow down the progression. The name of the medication is Forteo and you inject this daily for two years. Sounds like a real pain (no pun intended) I know but, if it will rebuild bone mass then I am all for it. I got a call from Forteo that my insurance approved me. I should be getting it in the mail sometime next week. Without a script card I could not afford it. I understand it is something like $1,000 a month. I am a short person already, and have lost two inches in height making me a whopping five foot tall. I really do not want to get any shorter so I feel it worth me giving it a try. That and the fact I do have it through out the entire spine and I am also at risk for faling. I have developed a natural talent for tumbling. If anyone is interested in this medication their website is Forteo.com and you can read up on it.
Hope everyone has whats left of a good weekend. I am off to a soccer game in about an hour.
