I broke my foot about a month ago, and since I’m 68, my doctor sent me to do DEXA scan and found that I have weakened bones in my feet, spine and neck. Hips are not affected right now but with this condition you never really know. The problem I’m having now is that fractured bone in my left foot is healing so slowly and I don’t see a way to follow doctor’s advice to be active because it’s proven to improve bone density when I can’t even walk. If anyone could help me, how long does it take for broken bone in foot to heal when you have osteoporosis, as well?
