I was getting a bit worried because I had not had the results of my mammogram or my bone density scan back. It finally came yesterday and I am very pleased!! The mammogram was totally normal, which we expected but of course there is always a bit of worry because you just never know. I am thrilled that I insisted on not just the bone density scan report but the actual results and a copy of the images on cd. I guess listening to my body did a LOT more than I thought. 6 years ago I had a scan that gave me a close to 80% chance of breaking a major bone in the next ten years. It took another 2 years for anyone to clue in that I had almost no Vit D in my body and that I get super super sick when I take vit D. Throw up for days sick. I fought to keep the supplements down, even to the point of super expensive shots that were specially compounded and did almost nothing to raise the level. Not even a 50% increase in the level after 3 months of having my mother pay for them. I hated asking, but what good would I be to my kids if my body just broke and then wouldn't heal? Two years ago I still didn't have any D in my blood, the surgeon who did my neck repair 1 yr before that was super worried that it wouldn't heal and sure that another one wouldn't be possible, and I was just over it all. I stopped fighting to choke down supplements. I searched and found that I can keep cheese down, and I can eat ONE flavor of yogurt that is only made by ONE company that I can find. So I eat that, at least 1 yogurt a day and some cheese on something. I walk and move as much as I can, I do a lot of stretching and gentle range of motion exercises that I learned as a teen and have always done, and I just listened to my body. Guess what???? I was right and the docs were wrong. I now have a 2.3% greater than normal risk of breaking a major bone in the next 10 years!!!!!!! From 80% higher to 2.8% higher!!! I actually got out my old test reports to make sure they were comparing the same things and using the same standards and yup, they did! My bones have gone from a hugely high risk of fracture to only slightly higher than normal risk of fracture!!!!!!! AND I am not taking phenergan every 4 hrs, 4 tabs a day max and still vomiting every day because the calcium/vit D supplements! It is something to celebrate!!! Milkshakes for everyone!!!!!
