I am 86 years old and pretty healthy. 33 years ago I had a laminectomy. 1991 had a hip replacement. 1999 had another hip done. 2005 had a spinal fusion and then in 2009 had a second spinal fusion one level above. I have severe scoliosis, spinal stenosis, in other words, my back is a mess. I have always dealt with this. About one year ago the pain started on my right side and across my back. MRI is good of both back and hips. Went to a pain management doctor, had another MRI and it is the thoracic area where a nerve is causing all the problems. Injections did not help. Therapy did not help. I will not go on heavy drugs so now I am taking 2 ibuprofen 3x a day. At night I might take a tramadol, 50 mgs. I am hoping the pain eases up a little, if not who knows..I am a gardener but it is becoming difficult to bend. So this is my story. Thanks for listening.
