My Dr. who did RNY left town, there is no RNY support locally or with in an hour away - PCP not sure what is best course of treatment. Can anyone offer current information on this issue?

I suggest you locate a gynecologist and get established with one for your well woman care. This would include bone density scans and appropriate medication for osteoporosis. I know that many RNY post-ops take Fosamax. For additional info, copy/paste the URL below: http://www.obesityhelp.com/articles/?s=osteoporosis
