Have you tried physical therapy? I had stenosis several years ago and had surgery to take out two lumbar discs. Then they put in a rod. The pain after surgery is awful. I did physical therapy and got so much better. Two weeks ago I fell on ice and landed on my backside. I've been in horrible pain. My doctor ordered physical therapy. Hope it helps. I use a tens unit. It doesn't always help but when it does it feels wonderful. I have a brand called Omron and it has lasted so long. It is $45 at Walmart.
