With being on steroids for Crohn's some 30+ years, and
now on Arimidex
for breast cancer, my bone
density has been seriously depleted. Because my bc had spread to my lymph nodes he wants me to stay on Arimidex, but he, and I , know it does not protect the bones like tamoxifen does, but has a better survival from recurrence. A catch 22 he told me.
I have been taking alendronic acid (bisphosphonate) for a year now, with Calchichew/Vit D, but my bone density is getting less.
