Hey all, have my bone density exam this morning. Hope there are no surprises there. Did have one a year ago (very early, early stage of osteopenia diagnosed), so hopefully I have not headed south too fast. See this extra crap women have to heal with?! Bone loss, especially in our 40's and 50's, with onset of menopause and downhill slide of our estrogen levels. Can't take hormone replacement anymore,nope, cuz that might kill us too. I guess one must guzzle milk and D supplements till the cows come home, no pun intended! Ha! Report in later....note to self....p/u more ointment for gross lips!
