Extremely Nervous About Stenosis Surgery
I found out today that after a year of endless PT, 3 spinal cortisone injections and lord knows how many pain medications, I was told today that conservative treatments simply aren't working for my spinal stenosis and 2 herniated discs (L4/5 and L3), and that surgery should be considered.
A lot of family and friends have also told me that time is likely come to consider surgery, because of how much pain I've been in, and how much it's destroyed the last year of my life (personal, work, etc).
I know deep down that I can't live with the deblitating pain any longer, but I'm extremely nervous about any type of surgery.
Im just looking for folks who've been through this with positive results. I know there's always risk with surgery, but looking this up online is just freaking me out more.
