Hi, I just joined and hope to communicate with others who have gone through what I am experiencing. I have spinal stenosis caused by a collapsed disc and I am scheduled for surgery on the 24th of this month. I have been waiting for two and a half years to get some relief; sure hope it helps. My spine is very unstable as well and has shifted by almost eight mm....it is pinching a cluster of nerves in my leg. I will have fusion and rods and pins. Thanks for listening; I will be sure to check back often after my surgery. Lin


  • Welcome to Spine Health. Best of luck with your surgery. I hope that you wake up feeling better than you have in a long time and with a stabilized spine.

  • I hope everything goes well with you surgery. Charry

  • Thank you for the well wishes; I am so anxious to see some relief from this annoying feeling in my left leg. I know I will be a while with discomfort, but I am looking for the end result. Take care.
