Osteoporosis

My son, 18 years old, had a fall and fractured his femur 9 months back. He was walking well before this and now he is trying hard to walk independently again. He has fallen a couple of times after the fracture and scared he might fracture himself again. Can anyone suggest some kind of foam mats to absorb the force of the fall, in case he falls, as he is really losing strength day by day. Thanks in advance.See More

It was hell to swallow this while keep tracking all relevant information for his treatment. We now face a dilemma and would like to hear your suggestions based on your experiences. Max is 4 and since he has not taken any medication he is eligible for two clinic trials in UC Davis where the medicine in test are supposed to have less side effects - called Vamorolone and Catabasis if anyone came across it. Both trials are for about 1 year. The…See More
