      I have not been diagnosed with osteo but I have suspected it for some time. I have brought it up to my oncologist but they seem to think it's not important right now. they want to concentrate on the cancer first then look at that. It seems like we could do both.

      Ask to have a Dexa scan. Painless..no contrast. They can and do treat both. Aromatase inhibitors can do negative things to your bones. You and your doctors need accurate info to make good choices for you. Tell your doc you are able to do two things at once. And really even more! Hugs!!!
      Ps. Remember, that doc is on your team but YOU ARE THE CAPTAIN. I said that to a very ‘important doctor’, caught him off guard, and we had great communication after that.

      I have been given a 0.5% chance of being alive after these 11 years. Had I worried about potential this or that, I'd simply be gone. I did not listen! (One of my best qualities).
