Hi everyone, I went to see a neurosurgeon today and he told me that he could fix my stenosis problem with a fusion of L4-L5. But, then he told me why he will not do the surgery due to Plavix. I had 3 medicated stents put in 2005, then had to have 2 more a year later due to stents closing. He told me that no neurosurgeon in thier right mind will touch me unless I come off of Plavix for 6 weeks. But then I risk the stents closing during those 6 weeks. Has anyone else had this problem? I cannot work due to the stenosis, so I feel stuck? Thanks for your help. I hope everyone is doing well!
