Does anyone here have bone problems or a metabolic bone disease? I'm wondering how the RT might affect the ribs?
I will ask my consultant when I next speak to him but wondered if anyone has experience of this?
I can't answer regarding metabolic bone disease but I know RT makes the bones more brittle and they can fracture more easily.
Thanks Peterawake. I did think that may be the case.
