I have spinal stenosis and am suffering extreme back and hip pain. I have an appt for Aug 2nd. I'm brining my MRI film, a Dr.from the Mayo clinic has reviewed the MRI report but not the MRI. The lady who made the appointment indicated it would be a short visit. My family Dr. thought they might start with thier own diagnostic test right away. Is there anyone out there that might have had a similar expierence and could help me with what I might expect? I am traveling from Hawaii so I want to make as few trips as possible.
