hi i have been recently diagnosed with osteoporosis. My endo doc wants me to get infusion of reclast. I take 81mg. aspirin daily as well as advair 3 blood pressure meds. I had bariatric surgery in 2012. Have been taking 1000mg. during this time. I have barretts, GERD and irritable bowel synd., diabetes,severe osteo arthritis, incontinence apnea and recent diagnosis or chordoma. I guess i want to know why if i have been osteopenic for many years nothing for my bones was suggested earlier. I read about jaw issues with this drug and I m concerned; for my dentist wants to start some root canal work. Help, I m looking for advice. I don t know what I should do.

I am 54 and I ve had a bone density test about 2 years ago. Based on the results my gynecologist thinks I have osteoporosis. I ve been takng Calcium and Vitamin D supplements since then. Yet my blood test results indicated normal levels of Vitamin D and Calcium. Does Is that indicate I may not necessarily have osteoporosis? She also recommended I see a rhumatologist. What would he do other than suggest continue with the Vitamins. Are there are other tests?
