Well, I hope you get to spend today resting and doing anything you want.

Waiting is plain rude, isn't it?! Unsure

My wish for you is better days, and a damn fix for your calcium troubles. Yes

May your test results be swift, and the answers be plain and simple. Oh, and cheap, too. Big Grin

My thoughts are with you, Angie.

I know how it feels to be poke, prodded, and tested all day.

Swell, I take calcium but instead of going to my bones it just turns into kidney stone while my bones deteriorate. More tests will be needed so the docs can figure out what to do. I can't take hormones thanks to the cancer so we have to find a plan B.

BLAH!

I think you've kicked the shit outta the cancer. As far as the osteoporosis and HRT, while estrogen therapy is contraindicated for you because of the cancer, I'm not sure testosterone therapy is. Don't know whether testosterone aromatases to estrogen the same way in women as men. But I do know testosterone is a serious repair hormone.

RE: Oncology appt
Thanks everyone. Will probably spend the weekend twitching and fretting about the cancer test...happens every six months. And lucky me...it's always around my birthday and Christmas...how freakin' festive.

The osteoporosis thing is upsetting...one of the meds they use has this as a swell side effect - may cause cracking of the thigh bone, which may break in half - well, that sounds dandy. I know that whatever they put my grandmother on really tore up her digestive tract...oh joy!

As for hormones, they won't put me on any hormone therapy.

For now I have upped the calcium and Vitamin D intake and if I get kidney stones again...they eventually pass. And I need to start some weight-bearing exercise.

I'll figure it out. Dodgy

My Mom: osteoporosis - rheumatoid arthritis - in her early 80s - takes no medications - walks 2 miles a day.
Her advice: KEEP ACTIVE... weights... and something for coordination, balance, and flexibility - Tai chi or yoga.
I hope your doc has told you it is easier for the body to absorb and metabolize Calcium citrate. Also, mushrooms are a natural source of vitamin D. Thumbsup
