Hi, Thank you for choosing HCM
Bone fragility is a common issue especially in women due to osteoporosis occuring post meno pause. Considering the age factor option of surgery is ruled out. At this age pain can be managed only with pain killers. Etodolac 90 mg can be given for a period of 2 weeks. Collacee , calcium and vit d supplements can be used as supportive therapy.
hope this helps you
Take care
