The last few days I was wondering if I should write more in detail about my visit to the Endocrinologist and now I know. It was too special “not” to share.
Read on and you will see why.
My Endocrinologist greeted me and said “so, you are here to get the results of the bone density scan.” So I told him “not really. I know the results already. I am here to find out if there is an underlying issue going on.”
Spends some time looking at the PC and tells me “You had another scan done in 2011. It looks like you had 12% bone density loss since then.” Takes a minute his time and asks “did you ever have another bone density scan done?” “Yes. In 2011.”
(This should have given me an idea of how the appointment would go…)
He asked if I lately had any fractures and there it went. I told him about my complete hip fracture and after determining it is unusal for somebody my age to get this, the investigation got started.
Doctor: “ What happened?”
Me: “ I had a ski accident. I slipped, both skis were pulled away right under me and I fell very fast and very hard on my right side. Like a log.”
Doctor: “ So you ran against a tree.”
Me: “ No. I had a “slip & fall”.”
Doctor: “ You mentioned a log.”
Me: “ Yes. I fell in a straight line. Like a log.”
