My mother just called to tell me she has osteoporosis adn it's in her spine too. I don't know much / anything about this problem. Can you help?
1. Will it get worse?
2. What can she do to make it get better?
3. What type of doctor should see about it? Is going to her GP ok, or does she need to see a bone doctor (orthopaedic I suppose?).
4. There are some ads I've seen for a drug about osteoporosis, and I can't remember the name. there's a famous actress in the ad...Sally Fields? Meg Ryan? Anyone know what ad it is and what the drug for osteoporosis is?
Thanks...any help woudl be great 'cos at this moment i'm CLUELESS!!!!
