Ask your doctor if Evista (prescription) is an option for you. Ask your doctor whether Didrocal or Fosamax is a choice as well?

Beware the soy, yam, natural supplements if you are trying to avoid the cancer potential no data yet whether since they mimic estrogen that they also may mimic the cancer part too.

Vit d 400- 800 mg per day (no more though, and a serving of fish gives about 500 mg)
Calcium 1500 mg per day if not on estrogen
limit caffeine
exercise (walking, stair climbing, dancing)(though maybe not an option for you...)

Ask your pharmacist or doctor to go through all the things you can do.
