Hi Irish were given some good advice on your other post. I too suggest you to read the [B]Myth of Osteoporosis[/B] by Gillian Sanson. It's been very helpful to many us when were first dx and puts a new perspective on how to look at osteo. Do you have the results of the DEXA they forgot to send or has your dr. ordered a new one be taken? If you could post those scores it would tell us more of what your are dealing with. You're right, most dr. encourage people to start with the osteo drugs, because that is what they feel is the right thing. If something is broke they feel its their job to do something to fix it. I don't know if a specialist would give the same advice or not..i guess it depends on his treatment of choice for osteo. If your gut tells you that that isn't the path you want to follow then its up to you to decide what is right for you. I took actenol for a couple of months before i decided it wasn't for me, i never did feel right about taking it.. i then started strontium and haven't regretted that decision at all. For me that was the right choice.

Before you see the dr. to discuss test results write a list of question you want to ask about the treatment, options or any thing else you feel is important to making a good informed decision. take care..phyllis
