I have osteoparosis and went to Mount Gould for a check up. The care has been good, but I found it really difficult when they first told me what I had. They just said, “you have osteoparosis”, but they don’t tell you what that means, what’s going to happen, or how you should look after yourself. I had to search around on the net, to try and work out what it all meant. When they said I was ill, I had no idea if I would die or anything. From the net, I found out that I needed to be careful of falls. Why couldn’t the nurse or doctor tell you that? I just think a bit of information on how to look after myself would have helped.
