How frustrating! For some reason Spine Heath gobbled up my letter to the forum! So here is a shorter version.
Need to know how you all cope with severe lumbar spinal stenosis? How do you manage to hang clothes on a hanger and put it on the pole? Cook? Walk up and down stairs? Sit? Please share with me your tricks for daily living. My stenosis is very advanced. I've lost 85% of my mobility. Have urinary and fecal incontinence. Had 2 spinal injections that didn't work. On Naproxen E for over 20 years. Lyrica for a year. Tried Celexa and then Cymbalta, but had to stop because of severe diarrhea. I live alone and am 64 years old with severe osteoarthritis in all my body.
