Post op height loss
« on: December 12, 2012, 03:53:48 pm »
Just been to get my prescription and blood pressure checked,the nurse asked to measure my height.I was sure I was 6'3" and know i used to be 6'4"now I'm 6'1 half!I heard about osteoporosis and people shrinking with age,my Dad's 5'11" and used to be 6'2" but he's 84.I'm 55 don't smoke,don't do drugs,vegetarian occasional drinker.Been taking premarin since January 1990 and post op since December 1994.I feel OK apart from the odd ache here and there and varicose veins/celulitis in right leg. Has any one here dealt with height loss osteoporosis?Will be back to see doctor again soon as possible.
