Osteoporosis, Kidney Stones or Morbid Obesity?

I am fascinated by these studies into the human microbiome. I spend hours deep diving into these topics. I used to think breastfeeding was the first innoculation, then I read The Missing Microbes.

So, there's a new stone, about 4mm and the stone that was 3mm about 14 months ago is now 7mm. Those cannot pass. And shock waves can break them up, but don't necessarily move them out. Then they sit there and grow.
Ergo, unless things move and I'm in pain sooner, I'll probably have another ureteroscopy in May...or maybe June.

Meanwhile, I'm "delaying" starting the Forteo. For now.

Gonna schedule a visit with the DS guru and discuss digestive enzymes.

I am currently trying to get Prolia covered. Insurance wants me to do Reclast first. I do not want bisphosphonates.

Meanwhile, I picture my bones turning to styrofoam......

Stones, however horrible, are nothing compared to a broken hip which may very well leave you bedridden before killing you. Reversing the DS won't do much to reverse bones loss and you'll be miserable. I'd rather be in excruciating pain once a year that miserable and 300 lbs all the time. I'm on time-released Urocit and it's greatly improved my kidney stone risk panel.

Agreed.

My uro is trying to ease me into urocit again but he didn’t tell me what he was up to. So we will have to change the brand. He rx’d a liquid, which has a sugar alcohol, usually not kind to me.

But his heart is in the right place.

The hip thing scares me...usually the beginning of the end.
