Hello I am a 14 year old boy from Staten Island NY... My dad has been diagnosed with Osteoporosis about 3 yrs ago... They said at that time he had the bones of a 80 yr old woman. My mother passed away last year and theres no one to take care of me and my brother. So my dad has been avoiding any hospital known to man kind... He has been taking fosamax since the beginning and it really hasnt improved anything just stabalaized it...These past two weeks though have been horrible... He felt a pain in his back and then started to spasm, The doctor said that it was either a fracture in the spine or somehting else. He said there was really nothing to do but just rest and take pain killers... he was doing better then today he burped and he felt his rib like pop and he began spasming.. This cant go on.. I need my father.. Does anyone know of anything more than Fosamax that can help, I would appreciate anything i can tell my stubborn father thanks a lot in advance
