Newly diagnosed with Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

I just had my first steroid injection yesterday. This is when I found out the results of my MRI. It should Lumbar Spinal Stenosis. I'm just curious (as I got to thinking last night when I couldn't sleep) if it's possible for abdominal adhesions to cause the stenosis. I've had several abdominal surgeries and even one to remove the adhesions. Any thoughts?


  • Lumbar stenosis can be one of two conditions- either the little areas where the nerve roots that come from the spinal cord exit between each vertebra, or it can occur in the canal itself where the spinal cord runs through your back.....but to answer your question, it would be highly unlikely that abdominal adhesions would have anything to do with either condition.
    Wrong areas of the front of your body to have anything to do with either the foramina or the canal itself.
    I hope that the injections work to relieve some of the pain you are experiencing.
