If I decide to go on a regimen of strontium citrate for 2 years instead of the Forteo that my physician recommends, how will I be able to assess any improvement after the next bone scan given the fact that the readings after taking strontium citrate might be elevated? I have just slipped into the osteoporosis range in the spine, having taken various bisphosphonates for some 10 years (and who knows what that's done to my body??).
Evidently, even if I do the Forteo instead, I will still have to take something to maintain any improvement after that 2 year period. These are such difficult decisions.
