Has anyone ever had a surgery for Spinal Stenosis of just having the excess disc material removed ? I have bad leg pain and cramps along with hip pain and stiffness and numb burning lower legs and feet. I'm also having a synovium cyst removed. If anyone has had this problem with this surgery would you please let me know hoe it turned out.The surgeon wasnt very friendly he just said my 2 disk were comp. bag and that is all he could do. He kinda acted as if it was a sure fix and easy fairly quick recovery. Never had surgery before will be my first and I want to know what to expect ?
