Depending on your own GP’s judgement you could be treated by an

                 endocrinologist, a gynecologist, a rheumatologist, an orthopaedist, a

                 geriatrician or a physiatrist. Plus, possibly, others.

                 Second surprise was that there are drug treatments for osteoporosis

                 – as we might expect – but they’re long-term, unreliable and riddled

                 with side-eyects.

                 I don’t mind admitting, I was very upset when I found out I had

                 The possibility of further fractures or breaks scared me, to be

                 honest. And I’m not ashamed to say that, even though I had
                 supportive family and friends, I felt very alone with the disease. 

                 I joined some support groups so I could be with people like me.  But

                 some of the news coming from them was very discouraging.

                 Which led to the third surprise. 

                 A number of them said that dealing with ongoing pain was all part of

                 the package for them. There comes a point, they said, when hurting
                 was just normal.

                  I wasn’t prepared for that at all.

                 Naively, perhaps, I had expected a cure.

                 I certainly didn’t expect to be in pain for large parts of the rest of my

                 life.  Yet it turns out that, for some people, the side-eyects of some

                 drug treatments were worse than the pain.

                                  The surprises kept on coming…

                 It was as I began my |rst course of meds that I found out disturbing

                 news about some of the better-known osteoporosis drugs.

                 Namely, if you ever come oy these drugs then the rate of bone

                 deterioration actively increased.
