I need your help and advice.............
Have any of you had or know someone who has had surgery for spinal stenosis?
I was diagnosed with Spinal Stenosis this past Spring and chose to try Physical Therapy to help with the pain and immobility. It did help to some extent, but the past few days, I have had pain in my lower back and down into my left leg. This is the classic pain of Sciatica, but what is throwing me off is the general weakness I am feeling in my lower back and in both legs. I also have constant pain in my lower left leg in the front and back. As much as I hate to think of having surgery, it may be my only choice. This is NOT something I would choose to live with for the rest of my life and the doctor who diagnosed me this Spring said that it would only get worse with time!!!
I would sincerely appreciate any suggestions based on your own experience or that of someone you know.
