Hi, I am not sure of the subject of this post but I am here mainly for input, information, etc. about back , leg, and neck pain due to arthritis, auto injuries, and Climate. I was in an auto accident at age 9 causing slipped epiffisus , not sure of the word but both hips came out of joint in stages. Had both pinned at seperate times within a year. I was told on the first one that I was allurgic to stainless steel so they took the 3 oins out of my l. hip and was casted for 7 months. The hip then healed and I was told they put a silver pin in the r. hip. I went thru life with constantly new problems with the back. Finally after countless chiropractic visits (the old way) I found that there was a lifetime hip replacement from my ortho surgeon done in 2000. I had l. done and right leg was 1 1/2" shorter than left leg. I then had right hip done and I felt like a million bucks. Walking 5 miles a day 3 months after right hip done in February 2001. Then in July , 2001 , I was rear ended by another auto at 40 mph while stopped. After that I had left hip rereplaced , massive nerve damage to L-3-4 area. I had a facet fusion in 2004 with a spinal cord leak after pulling cord from vertbrae. My hamstrings were terrible. I then went to texas back institute for an ALIF at the L-3-4 area and L5-S1. Yes a double. 3 months later the L5-S1 was loose , so I retured for screws and bolts. The surgery did not change the pain much.
