Discussions that mention morphine

Osteoporosis board


How encouraging that the Forteo has improved your T scores!! I also had the lateral view done this year but still had a decrease in my spine, not a lot but significant when you are looking at -3.4. I missed my MD appt. Tuesday as my son is pretty sick with a virus. I called and the next time I can get in isn't until Jan.4th. I am seeing a doctor at MD Anderson Hospital which is primarily a cancer hospital but they have a bone disease program and apparently I qualify as they took me as a patient. It is probably better to wait until after the holidays anyway with the cost that may be involved. I will let you know. I had tons of bloodwork and now have to wait until I go in Jan. to know the results. They have to look at where I am in menopause, etc. I am also now doing Yoga which is suppose to be really good for osteo. and I like it. The group I go to is all women who are in the 40's-50's and older so it is perfect, slow but still hard. My Mom passed away two years ago and she had lost almost 6 inches of height, multiple fractures, etc. I have to do something to ward that off. She was in horrific pain most of the time, even with morphine. She is my driving force now. Sorry to also ramble....I'll let you know what I find out in January, pretty sure they will start me on Forteo but you never know, maybe they will have something new......
