cervical stenosis and various others down the spine

Hi,
I am a fifty four year old male. Diagnosed with cervical spinal/foraminal stenosis, and DDD in 2008 in Florida. (monitor for changes)
My symptoms are now worse. I am dealing with the San Antonio VA only. My canal measures 6 mm at c3-c4.


I don't know how long I will have wait to see someone at the VA about this. Walking is slowed most of the time numb and pain arms and legs. My hands feel very clumsy.

Anyway, my questions are should I get some surgery, and if so is it something that can be put off some?
Looking at the images it looks like there is no room for the csf to pass, can this be a cause for headaches?

Thank you,

Bob
