Well, that was a good start to the day. The doc from rheumatology, who deals with osteoporosis, rang following my latest DXA scan.
Apparently my spine is in good nick and the bone density there has actually increased considerably since my last scan. (How? I don't take any potions for it other than my Calcium + Vit D supplements and I was doing the exercises when I had the previous scan.)
My arm (because they can't scan my hips due to THRs) does show osteoporosis but one has, apparently, to take that with a pinch of salt because all the years of RA that I have under my belt will have caused some changes which could be misinterpreted as osteoporosis.
So, I am to continue as before since it all seems to be working well and I'll have another scan 3 years hence. Sounds good to me.
And what was my beloved's first reaction to my good news?
