Mariane, I think Edy gave you great advice. I used to take and oral med for osteoporosis, but quit when it began to give me horrible heart burn; I mean almost unbearable. I do know the oral versions have a lower risk for causing deterioration of the jaw bone, but it is still possible. (And guess what? A DENTIST first told me of this risk). My MD told me the benefits outweighed the risks, and after doing my own research, I did start taking the med. I keep saying "the med", because I can't even remember what it was called, but it's an old one - the original one, if I remember correctly.
If I was told today I needed the infusion, I think I would decline. I do continue to take my calcium with Vit D. I like the idea of the magnesium as well. Gentle exercise, like walking, is beneficial, too. I grab the dog and we walk around the neighborhood. You live on the beach, so you have a perfect and lovely place to walk.
You don't need a whatchamacall it to read my books. They are ebooks, readable only on Kindle, but you can download the app to your computer or other device for FREE. My sisters didn't think they could do it, but both did. They said all they had to do was click, and it was very easy. Here's the link to my first book, if anyone is interested. Look to the right, underneath the purchase option and there is a place to download the Kindle app. I may do them in hard copies at some point, but it wont' be for awhile, if I ever do. http://www.amazon.com/Faylenes-Biggest- ... gest+catch
And yes, please don't forget about Verna's poetry books. She writes the most thoughtful and delightful poems. Give them a read and see for yourself.
