187 | P a g e 21. BOMBAK 2016 [188]: What Does Osteoporosis Mean for Patients and the Public - Metaphors and Cultural Models OP can have catastrophic effects for some people, and yet not for others. I am confused about how serious this is. I am confused about its prevention and treatment. I don’t trust my body. This is not my normal body. My body is frail. OP is destroying by body. You can SEE from your body changes if you are at risk. OSTEOPOROSIS 22.

OSTEOPOROSIS 24. BOMBAK 2016 [188]: How Do Patients Live with Osteoporosis? - Medication Adherence Medication is confusing and I need to be able to trust my doctor. I need reassurance about safety and side-effects. Calcium might be cheaper/ safer. I seek information before I make a decision. Some say I should take medication, and some don’t. Fear makes me take it. I feel guilty if I don’t take it. I am not at risk of fracture. OP is not as bad as other things. I will continue to take medication if it helps, but if I feel better I will stop. I try to modify my diet, exercise, take supplements and use walking aids. The most important thing is to not fall.
