it seems everyone i speak to doesnt do this type of surgery or doesnt want to. do these dr,s really understand the meaning of "no quality of life." so if anyone has any suggestions, let me know. by the way my type of stenosis is t10,t11,t12 caused by atrophy of the ligamentum flavum and arthritis. i am not a candidate for the neurostimulator since my cord is severly compressed and they are unable to insert even one wire for the stimulator. thanks for letting me ramble.
