My husband had one and definitely has oste
opena from the prednisone. On Fosamax once a week and has gotten back to exercising a little more regularly so hopefully it will be reversed in due time.
What is nice is being able to be pro-active with this so why not have the test done so you can deal with it accordingly is my thought. Much better to know so you can do something to reverse it.
Now if there was only a simple way to try to reverse this DD.
