    Chronic pain due to needing bone graph in femur/hip joint due to femur fracture 5 years ago which surgery did not properly repair--chronic bone deterioration in that left femur, lumbar spinal stenosis-awaiting surgery to L4/L5 slipped/ruptured disc. Left femur 1 inch shorter now than right femur.Chronic deterioration in right shoulder socket and upper arm, and clavicle--all due to longevity of insulin dependence for majority of life. Osteoporosis does not show up in blood tests, only osteopenia, altho oddities in bone density tests. Insurance w/not approve Exelon patch-concerns about Aricept effects on body and mind.
