I am seeking guidance in my situation with osteopenia. My DEXA asssesment is as follows: The BMD measured at APSpine L1-L4 is 0.904 g/cm2 with a T-score of 2.3 (7/2012)
Indications: Breast Cancer, Chemotherapy, Family History of Fracture - femur, Menopause, No HRT, Post meopausal, Radiation, and Aromasin for 5 years (completed Feb/ 2011)
Prior DEXA 11/2008- T 2.0, Recent DEXA: 7/2012 -T 2.3
My oncologist wants me to go on IV Reclast immediately.
My endocrinologist wants me not to go on meds yet but do yoga and pilates and continue with 1,500 calcium and 2,500 Vit D3 which I have been religious about taking.
I have great concern after reading many posts on WebMD regarding the infusion of Reclast and the nightmares that "some" have had. I am familiar with infusions and once they are administered, there's no going back. For this reason, and the fact that I am very sensitive to drugs, I believe I prefer an oral med at maybe once a month. However, I really don't know what to do so I am writing you. I have valued your clarity in description and your balance in perspective. What are your suggestions ? Thank you, in advance.
