Severe spinal stenosis: Would you do surgery?

I had cervical spine surgery at the Mayo Clinic 11 months ago and I do not regret it. I had numbness and tingling in my left hand, shoulder pain, and was losing strength in my left hand. Most of my symptoms have resolved. PLEASE NOTE: many orthopedic surgeons operate on the spine not just neurosurgeons. My surgeon was Dr. Ahmad Nassr whose research focuses on the spine. Please do not limit yourself to neurosurgepns only.

Agree. I had a great spine doc do my first 2 discectomies/laminectomies only 6 days apart. Guess I shouldn't have gotten up and cleaned the bathroom mirror! I was pain free and drugged so wasn't thinking. So glad mostvof your Sxs resolved bernese53
