I've Had Multiple Surgeries To Replace Disintegrated Joints With Metal And Plates My Strength Has Suffered I Need Advice I'm Not On Any Meds

Has anyone had surgery to replace the disintegrated joints and organs? If so what do you do to help with pain? The only meds I take are Ibuprofen 800's. I'm at a loss as how to help myself anymore, I've had 7 surgeries going on 8 if I go through with it. some sound advice would be appreciated.

Have none of the implants caused any issues for anyone else? I received a titanium implant in my wrist after breaking it and that is what sparked everything for me almost immediately. Now I am constantly short of breath, gluten intolerant, and toxins and irritants throw me into a scary flare up.

I've had so many surgeries I keep falling apart. I had no option but surgery.i suffer alot with pain. Tylenol arthritis helps but imuran has been the ground breaking med for me it helps me enough to get moving and get on with life.its non steroid .I'm on 300mg a day n may go up depending on my lab work, mobic and/ or celebrex have also been helping me they are anti inflammatories .hope this helps.

I know there are folks that are against opiods....but, I take lyrica tramadol and flexeril.....I am not going to suffer if there is something that I can take to get relief. How about Tylenol Arthritis? Sending Prayers for Comfort and Relief.
