Gina -honey -don't fret so much. you at least got SOME calcium in, and that's better than most people. a Blood calcium level won't show very much, because what's in the blood has come out of your bones - the only way to make absolutely sure is to have a bone density test.
BUT just take the right dose. do some weight-bearing exercise [walking is great - but also do some upper body weight work] so that the calcium will stay IN your bones, and you'll be fine. it is indeed possible to reverse whatever may [or may not!!] have happened to your bones.
you're doing fine. don't panic!
Start your day with a smile, and get it over with.
Keeping it off is a hundred decisions a day that help you maintain what you achieved. And that's the hard part. - L Sanders
