Endocrinoligy fr osteogenesis imperfecta
I'm 29 years old. Suffering from osteogenesis imperfecta. Have steel rods in my femurs and tibias. Move in wheelchair. In 2012 I met an endocrenologist and was taking zolendronate 4mg diluted in 100ml saline every 4 months until 2015. Then I stopped cz I needed to undergo surgery to replace a damaged rod in my tibia. Surgery happend in dec 15 but the bone was not healed fully for 2 years. The surgeon later told me it's due to the zolendronate. Bones got hard but slow to heal he said. There have been less fractures since 2012. Only 2 till date. Last one was in June 13. I wish to resume the injections but I have 2 more femur surgeries to go in near future. Recently I've noticed hairfall which is resulting in baldness and tooth decay. Also I need to know if my offspring will carry the disease or not. Where to being the treatment? I live and work in kalyan. Nearby doc is preferred.
