In about 2 weeks I go for an appointment with my bone specialist. It has been a year since I’ve seen him and the last time we saw him I was on medicine to help build bone and the medicine was working. That was a great relief to hear.
Last May I had to go off of the medicine so that I could have my hip surgery and with the delays I had and the upcoming shoulder surgery I have been unable to be on the medicine for the past year.
We will learn at this appointment how my bones have held up for the past year without being on the medicine. I know that I may have to go back on the medicine but more than likely I will have to wait until I have my surgery before I can get back on it.
It can be a scary thing. For most people a year is just a year, but for me the past 4 1/2 years it has been up and down battle.
As I sit here and write this it’s hard to believe this has been going on for so long. Four and a half years! In a sense it’s felt like its been longer, but I think that’s just because of so much happening in the first few years.
