I have osteoarthritis just about everywhere. I have had bilateral hip replacements, knee replacement, shoulder replacement and stenosis for which I have had back surgery for L4-5, S1, laminectomy and spinal fusion. The stenosis is back in my spine. I have been taken off anything with acetaminophen b/c of the kidney damage. I am in terrible pain and need something that I can take that will not cause more kidney damage. I have asked my rheumatologist for a referral to a pain clinic and she said I would have to wait until my appointment in December. Every step I take hurts.
Any suggestions would be appreciated
