I know that those are tough choices, but your medical team should guide you through. I would also talk to them to explore the benefits of bone building drugs. Synthetic Parathyroid Hormone treatment such as Tymlos can rebuild weakened bones. Human monoclonal antibodies such as denosumab can increase bone density. That might be your Hail Mary.
My sister suffers from Lymphedema and had to go the external fixator route for a broken tibia. It was no picnic but it was more of an 8 week nuisance than it was a painful experience. And make sure that you have full confidence in your doctors. Remember, availability is not a talent. My sister went through a couple doctors until we found the right one.
Best of luck. Let me know if there is anything we can do to help.
