Diagnosed with cancer X2, and chemotherapy x2. Started having back and hip pain, was diagnosed with scoliosis, stenosis, pinched nerves, hurniated and bulging disc, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia. Don't think I left anything out. Due to osteoporosis cannot have surgery. I take hydrocodone and get injections every three months. Have tried everything that I have known or been told about and so far the pain medicine and injections are the only things that help for any length of time. Am open to suggestions.
