Up until 1993 I was a healthy young man. I danced, traveled, did walking tours, etc. From then on, it was downhill.
Dealing with the pain has become an occupation in itself. I have read almost everything written and listened to many "experts".
The only ones that seem to make sense are those who have gone through some of the pain that I have.
One of my doctors resorted to a pain pill, without testing it on me, that had me dead on the table. His excuse, "I've given this to 25,000 patients and never had a problem."
Now, before taking something new, I read. (Large print, please)
I am now in my middle 70's. I had to give up dancing unless I take double pain pills and then the wife says I'm no fun.
I travel in a scooter which does make the travel better. I cruise as often as the bank account allows. The doctors work around my schedule.
I'm in this Forum as per my New Doctors request. Seems like the place to be.
