    Chronic Back Pain after 5 surgeries

    I am 72, had 5 back surgeries which included a rhizotomy, fusion, cyst, and 2 others I cannot remember off the top of my head, and am going for epidurals again for 2 pinched nerves and need another fusion.
    To what end do I say stop, I have had enough, but rely on Pain meds and Pain?
    I can’t take the pain so I feel I am over a barrel and with out the surgery and the hope of leading an almost normal life, what are my options?
    Opinions please. Thank you for at least letting me get it off my shoulders.
