The new Neuro - l had an appointment with in Feb. Has written to my GP requesting that l have bone-density test done ASAP as he is concerned about me falling down and braking bones. Also he has arranged for me to see a neuro-physio. l went , yesterday, for my ‘scan’. lt was very different from the one l had about 4yrs ago. The ‘bed’ was huge that l had to lie on - and the scanner went up and down over me several times. l remarked to the radiologist about the size of the contraption and she said it was American - obviously made to cater for enourmous patients. lt was wider then the corridor outside where people were sat waiting. How they got it in situ l do not know.
Anyway, the good news is - according to the nice lady operator - my spine looks very healthy. She said ’ l can see you take HRT - lt makes such a difference really protects your bones.’ l told her that apart from years of hrt - l have been taking vitd3/magnesium for the last 3yrs. She asked me if l managed to do any exercise. l said l do what l can on my machines and l try not to sit down much during the day - keep moving. 'Well ’ she said - l have great pleasure in telling you that your spine is looking very good and l will send the results to your GP straightaway. So apart from my MS - and my dodgy hip - their is nothing wrong with me.
So l shall have to stop moaning.
