Hi Everyone,

Can anyone help?? Here is my story: I had my rods removed about 6 months ago to try to get rid of the unbearable stabbing/burning upper right shoulder blade/thoracic area. Six months later and I have had no improvement. I am 27 and may have to quit my teaching job if I cannot reduce this unrelenting chronic pain. My surgeon mentioned prolotherapy and I have been researching it. It is a lot of injections (like 100 at a time) of sugar-water that apparently promotes the body to repair tendons/ligaments that are weak and not functioning properly. I am seriously considering it since I have tried everything else over the last 2-3 years to stop this pain. Anyone know anything about prolotherapy or have any thoughts. I would really appreciate any help.

Sincerely and with hope.
