This question is mainly for anyone who was diagnosed (MRI) with severe spinal stenosis and then had laminectomy surgery.
Could you tell me what your pain symptoms were before surgery? Particularly when the pain got better, worse. Did it get worse the longer you walked? Did it immediately relieve or lessen when you sat or bent forward? Or did it ever worsen upon sitting down?
Of course, tell me how surgery affected your pain, mobility, ability to resume activities, etc.
I’m interested in a variety of experiences so I hope many spinal stenosis patients reply.
