Is there any relief to live with scar tissue from four back surgeries?

Asked by john65pennington (29235points) November 8th, 2011

It was bad enough that I had to endure the first surgery in 1972. Endoscopy had not yet been invented and today I am suffering from the pain of those scars left behind. Question:how does one cope with these scars, other than taking pain medicene and muscle relaxers for the rest of their life? My doctor states that surgery is not an option, it will only make the situation worse. I have tried physical therapy and nothing seems to help.
