Hello Mr. lybrate-user sazo is a disease modifying drug whereas retoz is an anti inflammatory medicine used for your condition. These medicines are not steroids. Keep your immunity high by a balanced diet, adequate sleep/rest and reduce exposure to crowds to prevent risk of covid 19. I would like to know more about the status of your joints/muscles/bones as far as ankylosing spondylitis is concerned. Feel free to consult me for a detailed consutation. Good luck.

If you have any neuro problem like numbness, weakness or itinerary better to do surgery. If only pain is there you can undergo a course of physio including traction and heat modalities medications are ok but please add vitamin b12 also.

She is 67 and having knee pain for last 7 years. Definitely her knees are in advanced stage of osteoarthritis. See an orthopedic consultant near u, and if advised for knee replacement go for it. As quality of life will improve after surgery.

Orthopedic spine surgeon like is the best judge for your spine condition. But the surgical decision has to be always patients. If there is 60% improvement in symptoms, you should try a selective nerve root block and start physiotherapy in the form of back exercise and core strengthening. you can always choose surgery at a later date if you cannot tolerate the symptoms.
