Endocrinologist for bone density support?
I am wondering how common it is to see an endocrinologist for questions or support with bone density concerns caused by hormone therapy. I was diagnosed last summer at age 36 and I am currently on ovarian suppression and tamoxifen. I know the ovarian suppression puts me at risk for osteoporosis. I just got a bone density scan today, so I don't have those results yet. My medical oncologist wants me to start zometa in August to prevent bone loss even if I don't have any bone loss yet. But, I am wondering if talking to an endocrinologist would make sense to help make the best decision about zometa, since it also has its own side effects and risks. I am wondering if others in a similar situation have found it helpful to talk with an endocrinologist or another specialist.
