Bone Density True/False

For years I have had GREAT Dexascan results; very healthy dense bones at the density equivalent of someone 30 years younger. My internal med doctor and I attributed this to a generally healthy life style for bone density-how smug of me. Coming out of anesthesia from my fibula surgery my surgeon told me than my bone was somewhat soft for someone who is as active as I am. Shock. How could this be? Well, it is; once I can walk again, I'll go back to my internal med doctor and likely start osteoporesis meds, since they generally require walking for a short period after taking them. I still can't figure this one out, since the Dexascan reviews on the Internet look solid. I'll keep you posted once I learn more.
