Hi @Dawnyp, no idea, I have Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) but I was diagnosed about 10 years later with osteoporosis and scoliosis, out of nowhere, and I have had several (now healed) fractured and compressed vertebrae over the years…
You are in the best place to ask your consultants the direct questions you would like answers too.

Hi @Dawnyp. It’s an interesting discussion isn’t as I know often when the illnesses occur we look at whether things are connected. Are you able to talk to a member of your team whilst you are in hospital? What have you been told so far?
I hope they are taking good care of you. Please keep us updated :blush:
