Randall Long (2 years ago):

Have a failed lower back fusion and been on low dose hydrocodone for 7 years. Last 3 years I have to have cortizone injections in my knees, and now the xrays shows bone to bone in my shoulder, Doc says its beyond cortizone and gives a numbing injections. Need a shoulder replacement. Is it from long term use of the pain meds or caffeine ?
In fairly good shape, not overweight. Thanks R.Long
