I joined this forum in support of my husband because I've gotten a tremendous amount of help & encouragement from a scoliosis forum for myself.
My husband, Rick, age 61, was diagnosed with severe lumbar stenosis about 10 months ago. His ortho said nothing could be done & he'd have to live with it. We found a neurosurgeon who said he can fix the problem by re-doing a previous L 4/5 & adding L3/4. Surgery will be anterior. After Rick fell in the drs office, the neurosurgeon also suspects cervical stenosis & has ordered an MRI of the neck before the lumbar surgery can be performed. We're waiting. Rick is in a great deal of pain & takes prescribed maximum doses of Percocet.
Is anyone from the Columbus, OH area?
