    Does MDS cause compression fractures

    Robin Smith

    Nancy, I had two compression fractures before I was diagnosed with MDS. Have you had a bone density test yet? If not, you may want to talk to your doctor about having one done. My understanding is that compression fractures have more to do with thinning bones, which is fairly common for women as we age, than MDS. Sorry if you’re dealing with compression fractures.. they’re certainly no fun. I had kyphoplasty surgery twice, which in my experience, was “miracle” surgery. It wasn’t painful and I walked out of the clinic feeling like I had my life back again.
