Hello, Thanks for writing to us,

If medications are not helping in pain relief you can go for epidural injection in institute set up so that post injection management if required can be done.

Take lumbar corset support ,it will give pain relief.
At age of 68 you cant think of any operative procedure.
physiotherapy will give her good relief.

I hope that I have answered your query. Let me know if I can help you further. Take car
