Currently fighting this...trying to avoid surgery by stretches, shots, etc. Think they do this these days with minimally invasive surgery but it's still surgery therefore trying to avoid if possible.

Sorry Janet. I just answered your post on the Main Forum if you don't mind going back there. Mine certainly was not minimally invasive but I know it depends on exactly needs to be done.

Blessings.

I'm going to have a laminectomy and posterior fusion this year for severe central stenosis.

It sounds like you had "the works/full service." Yes it depends on what they're doing but I understand a lot more back surgery is done MIS these days. What I had done decades ago involved a long incision + 10 day hospital stay now can be done MIS & go home same day...practically drive-thru laugh2

Anyways, thrilled to hear how well you've improved. I had a good outcome w/back surgery in medieval times. You made the right decision for you.

Hi,
Today I consulted my Rhuemy and explained my problems with difficulty in walking even a short distance even after taking heavy doses of pain killer. He examined me and said Remicade is working. On further examination, he suspected pain due to nuero claudication. He adviced MRI for canal stenosis. He also adviced nerve conduction test. I proposed to undertake them next week.
I would like to know how to manage this problem from those who are suffering from this condition. Is this manageable with medication?

Jay

Jay-
Hi
I have limb pain and tingling all day every day from stenosis. I am not convinced yet that it would be worth it for me to have surgery.

It is amazing how much pain we can get used. But finding good endorphins and stuff to laugh at become increasingly difficult.

Please keep me posted, I care.

Hi Lon,
I am planning for lab investigations, MRI and nerve conduction study, in a couple of days. Presently, it is limiting my movement to very very short distance.
