Eileen, Diane,

Thanks for your reactions.
Next week I have an appointment for a second opinion and I’ll give you an update.
Meanwhile I had my blood checked. Everything was ok, except for my vitamine D value.
I was shocked to read my vitamine D level was insufficient and extremely low.
Don’t understand how this is possible! I was inside the house from early December until the end of February. Since then I have been outside daily, sometimes only for 30 minutes but also for many hours a day. Unfortunately Belgium has a rainy climate and not much sun. I have always been an outdoor person, I love the sun and I my diet is healthy.
I wonder if the vitamine D deficiency was already there when I was hit by the car, and thus may have aggravated the fracture? Or has the healing process absorbed practically all my vitamine D resources, thus leading to the present deficiency?
Although I made some research, I did not find any answers yet.
I wonder if anyone has the same experience.
