Hi Phyllis: I thought of a question that I would ask the Dr if I were in your shoes, and that is if the spondy was caused by a stress fracture, like most, does he think it's osteo related? I would also ask if there is a fracture can it be seen on the xray, and if not would they considered a mri/ct scan. I know in my situation once I had my 6 vertebral/fusion fractures, it changed the way they looked at osteo treatment. Mine occured spontaneously-non injury-so it's helpful to know if this is related, and mine did not show up on an xray. I know that strontium prevents vertebral and non vertebral fractures, but since you don't know for sure "if" it is a fracture I would ask, so you have a better idea of how your bones are doing and how the strontium is working. Hopefully it will heal and the pain will subside, even though you said it's better, you just don't want it to happen again, because it's easy to miss (fx) or for it to go undiagnosed. Both my grandmothers had many undiagnosed fx's over the years but they had the kyphosis of the upper back, and lower fx's or problems of the spine don't cause the thoracic hump.

Good luck!!!
