Degenerative Disc Disease, scoliosis/kyphosis, osteoporosis

Hello All,

I am a 63 yr old female. I have been diagnosed with the 3 ailments. I am in alot of pain and am taking Vicuprophen daily. Is there anyone with something similiar? I saw an orthopedic doctor about 2 weeks ago. They have me on a "stabilzaton program." My son & daughter n law took me to a chiropractor this weekend. The doctor & chiropractor both said that my condition will only progress and get worst. I try to exercise, but that is also painful.

The physician wants me to take Fosamax (biophosphate) but I am deathly afraid of the "dead jaw" complications. I already have TMJ, and it hurts. I hate to have any more complicatons that I already do with my jaw. Does anyone have any advice, comments, going through anything remotely similiar? Please respond.

Thank you,
Cara
