Feeling so frustrated (as usual) ~ 96 year old grandmom’s right shoulder is still bothering her. I’ve seen the xrays...there is no hope for that shoulder. Only way to truly fix it is a total shoulder replacement - which I absolutely will not give consent. She’s tried NSAID’s (no luck); tylenol (nope) and meloxicam (wound up in the hospital with abdominal pain). Also tried OTC pain patches, icy hot, etc (no luck). Currently getting cortisone injections into the shoulder (...even that is a hit or miss, only gets a few days relief if lucky). Recently (12/31) had a fall, xrays showed no fractures but a ton of arthritis. Family doctor gave her antibiotics (likely chest infection was the cause of the fall). While looking online for items that would make our lives easier (researching bed rails, so she can get up easier at night and I won’t have to worry) - came across medical marijuana as a pain relief option. Does anyone have experience with this type of pain relief? Is it easy to obtain? Was thinking maybe get it lotion form to put over the painful shoulder. Or would a pill form be better? Ideally love to talk to someone from PA (where we live) regarding this.... But am open to talking to others who have gone this route.
