All tests negative for anything. His issue started immed. after knee replacement. Muscle spasms began in leg, but spread to other leg and sometimes abdomen. Cleveland Clinc only found a little stenosis and suggested surgery which did nothing. He fell two years ago and broke 3 ribs. Since then, he leans sideways terribly, and the rehab Dr said a brace would weaken his muscles. Nothing offered to help straighten him. He needs assistance with everything and a great fall risk - especially falling backwards. He can walk with a walker, although more of a shuffle dragging the one leg.
The big problem is that he desparately needs a shoulder replacement, but he leans to that side. Orthopedic Dr gives him cortisone shots which helps minimally for maybe a month.
There may be no solution, but he is in excruciating pain, and I don't know what to do or where to turn. Pain management tried a opiod patch with no relief. Hubby takes ibuprofen or Tylenol. If the shoulder could be replaced it definitely would help with walking. He is now 72 and I'm worn out having to help him stand and walking with him everywhere etc etc. Any suggestions, especially for the leaning and shoulder. Thanks
