I am the same age as your mom with advanced Osteo. Your doctor is the best place to get advice there is a lot of misinformation on the web. There are a number of reasons she could have osteo. My reason is genetic and early menopause. I do not meet the profile and the genes skipped a generation myself and my 49 year old sister have it. The first sign was loose teeth but the dentist never said have a bone scan.
So my disease progressed for years before it was discovered. My experience is fosomax difficult to take, severe side effects possible i switched to Miacalcin nasal spray and organic Harmones Prefest and am hoping for the best. Any sudden weight lifting is a no no. I find just staying active and not over doing it is good, walking etc. However you have to be careful you dont fall
and avoid situations that could cause a fall. Special care with the back to avoid fractures is important. Your mother should get professional advice.
