Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.
Did you have any problems after the saddle block was performed?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
NO, but they mentioned it may cause problems later in life. I am having a lot of back pain now and wonder if it could be from that.
Expert:  Dr. Owen replied 6 years ago.
Oh, very unlikely that you would have pain from a saddle block 48 years later - if you were going to have any pain or complications, this would have appeared YEARS ago, around the day of or a few days later from the saddle block.
So, Back pain now at your age is usually do joint / musculoskeletal pain such as arthrtitis, disk disease/degeneration, a herniated disk. So, I would look more into that as a cause of your back pain.
