Sorry - posted this in the wrong bit (new!)
I have spinal stenosis and spondylolisthesis L4/L5 L5/S1. Have had each of facet joint injections, rhizolysis and lumbar epidural - limited benefit, now awaiting surgery. Dead scared of that - decompression and stabilzation. Don't really want anyone playing around with my back and some of the posts about complications scare me also.
Constant pain, numbness, tingling - you know it. Who can reassure?
I was in shock when i spoke to dr, so can't remember how long I'll be in hosp and how long till I'm walking, driving etc. (BTW - excuse my ignorance, but what's blt??)
