How in the world did I miss you blog post about your hip and new necessary tests due to your age! In the US, women are told to start at 40 getting mammograms so I've had a few. It's uncomfortable but not really painful - at least that has been my experience. Not to the colonoscopy stage yet and THAT I am more scared of than my first mammogram! Don't you have to go under anesthesia? Have you already had it done? It's good that doctors nag us about it or I bet most people wouldn't do it! : ) How is your hip, and I had no idea a cortisone shot lasted 6 months! Wow! Good to know for the future, hopefully it is knowledge I won't need! Much better than surgery though for sure. I always notice that my age group (45-49) has twice the number of women running that the 50-54 age group and I can not figure out why! Osteoporosis do you think? My knees and osteoporosis really scare me - I take calcium pills in addition to my vitamin every day! Have missed you Chickadee! : )
Hey a few months back you commented about my MS asking what type. Im still early in it with only 4 lesions in my brain so its rrms. I am currently taking shots daily and working out pretty consistently to boot. I did the lumbar puncture and ended up in the hospital for 6 days because of a spinal headache but have been pretty ok since. I am having a lot of issues fighting the fatigue tho and its very frustrating.
