    Hey Tom, Have you had any treatment at all for the l4l5 stenosis issue such as injections and pt of any kind?
    Surgery options are mostly saved for last when all else fails so hopefuly you find alternative treatments to help and posibly able to avoid surgery, The ddd alone is not always as serious as some people think as many have it and never need surgery unless its causing serious other issues and compression,

    Best of luck and let us know what your dr recomends,
