Our expert says:
The fact that you are underweight and have not used any HRT post- hysterectomy does make you fall in a high risk group for osteoporosis. That is probably why your doctor is sending you for a bone density test. I must actually congratulate him on that as many doctors would not have thought about osteoporosis. What he meant about it not being serious now is that the quicker you start looking after your bones, the more effective the prevention.
