Hi everyone. Glad to have found this forum. I recently had xrays, and then MRI because of severe bilateral leg pain and back pain. I have spinal stenosis at L4/5 and L5/S1 with involvment of downgoing nerve roots. Exit foraminal stenosis at L4/5 bilaterally as well as at L5/S1 on the left. There is also a far lateral disc herniation at L3/4 on the right. I am in a lot of pain, and the pain meds are not making much of a difference.
I am terrified of surgery. ~X(
