I am 71 yr old. Have had 17 surgeries,3 rotor

I am 71 yr old. Have had 17 surgeries,3 rotor cuffs....no cartilage in left very little in right. Right knee surgery caused by brown recluse spider bite, venom ate a third of my kneecap, half the tendons and bursa sac removed. 7 various surgeries on both feet. Too long to explain them. My doctor has me on 4 Advils, alternating with 4 Tylenol and 2 Acetaminophen 500 mgs. each. Is there a different regimen that I could be taking fewer pills? I am in extreme pain most of the time.

My father got internal bleeding (black stool, low hemoglobine). Doctors made endoscopy and found a 5cm mass in his stomach. A later ultrasound endoscopy is suggesting it is a non cancerous GIST. They recommended surgical removal. My father is 71 years old, hypertensive, renal dysfunction, got some psychiatric issues and medications, and has a chronic constipation. Surgery seems very high risk. Are there other options? also, is it possible that diagnosis is wrong and it is not a GIST? would it make a difference or removal is the solution anyway?
