Christina explains if she is a hip replacement candidate due to her osteoporosis.

Yes. The worst osteoporosis that’s right now in my system is actually the right femur and the right hip. So if I would have, if I would not have gotten on Boniva®--I have only been on it since October, they told me you can be on it for five years--probably by the time, they tell me about the time I am 40, 45 that I have to get complete hip replacement.

Let’s hope I don’t have to, but we don’t know. This is all new for me, and just actually I am getting over a fall that I had about a month and a half ago, fractured my wrist, fractured my thumb. And that was like the icing on the cake for me to realize okay, I am fragile. I have to be careful now.

But when you are young you don’t think of that. I just, it didn’t even dawn on me. I am like, oh oops, that’s right, osteoporosis. And that’s why I want to learn so much more about that and just what else is out there? There must be something else out there that I don’t have to have this hip replacement when I’m 40 or before.
