Hi, My 92 year old mother has osteoporois (sp?). She has been having severe back pain for the last 2 weeks, ending up in the emergency room on Friday. She will be having a procedure to fill in the fractured vertebraes in her back. I believe it is in 2 - 3 spots. Our family is more concerned not about the procedure, because it sounds promising, but by going under local anesthesia , rather than a local injection in the vertabrae. What are your feelings on local asnesthesia for someone of my mother s age. Concerned daughter I just happened to run across this website while doing research on the procedure my mother is having. I thought that this was a free site..... I m already spending money going back and forth to visit my mother. I don t want to pay $10.00 for an answer....
