I just gave birth 5 months ago via CS. I noticed that my bones especially sa spine and knees are getting weak and painful everyday.I was diagnosed with osteopenia before way back 2008 but never got treated.I had no time to consult regarding my osteopenia. Is this weakening of the bones due to my osteopenia or is it a long term effect of giving birth especially because I had a CS? May I know what type of doctor should I visit regarding this? thank you Doc D.
Since I am not really a bone specialist…I have forwarded your question to the best of the best…my husband!
He is a Physiatrist (pls. take note of the correct spelling) or Rehabilitation Medicine Specialist. They take charge of all kinds of joint, muscle or bone pain from sports injuries, arthritis, stroke, accidents or trauma and old age. They’re the people you see BEFORE you agree to any surgery. Baka pwedeng daanin sa gamot and physical therapy muna.
Here is his 2-cents worth:
