Shots did not work for back. Cortisone helps hip and knees. I'm 74. Should I expect a better, pain free life. Had surgery on both feet. knee replacement. So inactive for a few years . Used to swim, play tennis, walk, shop, travel. Can't do anything now. Stay home, take care of my dog and rest. Do a few chores.
