Okay ... so the results are in ... and it was encouraging to find out that my strict regimen of supplements has yielded positive results!
My appointment with the specialist was on Tuesday. It was the hottest damned day of the year so far ... but after a quick stop in at Timmie's for a muffin and Frozen Raspberry Lemonade ... I made it over to the doc's office ... only to have to wait 40 mins to see him (why are doctors such poor time managers?)
And once in his inner sanctum ... discovered that he didn't even have a copy of the test results! After a quick call to my physician's office ... they were able to fax over a copy of this report ... so I was able to get the feedback.
At least it was good news! My bone density has improved by a good margin! I went from a reading of -3.6 to -2.1 ... (and in whatever units this is measured ... it is good!)
So ... it would appear that the 2 injections of Prolia ...as well as my daily ingestion of extra calcium & Vitamin D3 are making a difference. Good to know ... glad that I'm showing an improvement.
The regimen will continue ... andI have a script now for 5 years worth of Prolia ... so same time next year after another Bone Density Scan ...we'll review the stats again ... and hope that same measurement of density will show the same increase. I guess time will tell ... but I'm optimistic that "tried & true" will produce the results we expect ... here's hoping! It is encouraging for the moment ... and one less thing to stress over.
Relieved for now!
Hugs ... Marie
