Hi All,
I've got a dexa scan on Monday.....due to this fracture THR post op.
They think I must have osteoporosis.....Probably have....the last scan showed up as Osteopinia 3 years ago.
I'm due a repeat scan this August {3 years from the last} but they brought the appointment forward.
Oh well......probably something else to get my head around

Love
Hileena

    Hi Hileena

    I wish you all the best with the Dexa. I hope you do not have to join me in the OP group. ;)

    It is defo something to get your head round if you are diagnosed with it, speaking from experience. ;) GP's are often clueless on this subject unless you are very lucky.

    I have joined two OP forums which were and still are most informative and helpful, the US one being more so as it is a massive forum.

    Good luck with it, Hileena, I remember it being a straightforward process. You need to know what's going on and this should help with diagnosis. I'll be there in spirit. :wink: DD

    Thanks everyone
    This is the third one I've had over a period of years.
    The last one they told me {unofficially} right away that I had osteopenia
    Hopefully they will tell me this time as well

    Love

    Its 9.30am
    Just got a telephone call from the hospital :o
    We have to cancel your appointment. :shock:
    The machine has broken down :x
    We will send you another appointment when it is up and running.
    WONDERFUL!!!! :roll:
    When you are ready to go...to get a call like that is very depressing. :cry:

    Love

    Oh bother - at least they rang rather than letting you arrive before telling you. Still, it is a blow because we do get ourselves psyched up for these things. I am sorry. ((())) DD

    Oh blast- how frustrating. Seems to me you need to treat yourself to something you really like as compensation. Have a good day,

    Hi Hileena,

    Sorry about this. I hope you've had a good treat to make up for the frustration; a strong cup of tea and a couple of choccie bics tends to work for me! I'll be available for pocket duties when necessary :)

    Best wishes,
    Phee
