    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    she did ask me if I had any questions but at the time it hadn't sunk in. she didn't say anything about meds, exercise or what I could and could not do. I am in the dark, but plan to educate myself about this. Feel lost. I thank WebMD for the info I have read thus far. Please pray for me.

    Hi roblurik,

    I think it's great that you are planning to get all of the information that you can about osteoporosis. The tips and resources on the left hand side of this page are a great place to start for information on osteoporosis if you haven't already checked them out. Also, the members of this community are really great about answering questions related to osteoporosis and things you might experience, so don't be shy about posting a question.

    Here are some links that I found that you might want to take a look at.
    Best wishes,

    Atti
