I had NO BACK PAIN until I had knee replacement surgery in 2012. I had to retire early due to the pain of which I still have and have not had any real relief from since. I am in pain management have had all kinds of injections and continue to take Percocet 10/325 4 times a day. I had to stop taking ibuprofen and aspirin products after I had a heart attack 6 months ago.
