Hi my name is linda. I have been suffering acute pain in back and legs and hips for over 15 years. I have had a double hip replacement and also a two level fusion in spine lower back. I still have horrendous pain in lower back and down legs. I am various cocktails of tabs and still no easier. I have a batch of nerves they can see that bone is pressing on but they are reluctant to operate as could lose power in legs. They tried spinal blocks but could not get needles in as I have alot of metal in that area. Has anyone else been in this position. I am feeling decidedly delressed to extent dont feel I can take much more.
