I really need to get a good game plan also. I am on Arimidex and my bone scan showed osteopenia. I think my hips were the worst. My onc gave me a script for Boniva, but I didn't get it filled. Im trying to do what I can for my bones without adding any drugs.
I take 2000 mg Vit D3. I also take a 500mg Calcium/Magnesium pill.
I've been going to Yoga class 2x a week, and I try to get some walking/stair climbing in everyday. No specific weight lifting but I do lug around stuff at work....does that count?
I do eat lots of calcium rich foods, greek yogurt is my favorite.
I'm curious about the coffee....I drink atleast 2 cups in the a.m. to wake up and another at work. Does it deplete calcium?
Hope others post too, I need to have a good bone scan next time!
