Re: Concerned daughter :(
Thank you for your quick response. I'm sad that my suspicions seem to be true because if we had known before we would have had my mom do surgery for her herniated discs instead of having her receive cortisone injections :/(she has herniated discs in the cervical and lumbar spine.)My family and I talked it over and our last and best option right now is to go for surgery , that way she can stop receiving these injections that are doing her harm.
Thank you for responding! The anesthesiologist she had been seeing for those three years did know of her condition, in December of 2009 he read me mom's bone density test and seemed surprised at how fast her bones deteriorated. Her primary doctor and her anesthesiologist both new about her history with Osteoporosis and her primary doctor did know she was receiving cortisone injections. I am very confused as to why no one ever warned us..I must say I am really at a loss for words. I am feeling frustrated, confused, worried ..as you can imagine.
Thank you again guys for helping me and my family understand more about the risk that cortisone causes people with osteoporosis.
* God bless you and your wonderful families <3
