I recently was diagnosed with a small stress fracture on the top of one of my feet. It healed relatively quickly, but because I am in menopause, my doctor wants to do a bone scan to see if I am at risk for osteoporosis.
Have you ever had a bone density test? What should I expect from such a scan? How does it work? Is there a number, as in cholesterol, that is good or bad in terms of bone strength or density?
