Feb 5, 2018 · Spinal stenosis- lumbar in Spine Health

I was diagnosed with Lumbar Spinal Stenosis 10 years ago. At first I just got shots in my back and they did help for quite a while. A lot of the pain and the weakness was in my legs. I reached a point where I could not stand on my legs for 10 minutes at a time. I couldn’t stand in line at a store even if I had a shopping carriage. I did decide to have surgery as I wanted to be able to walk I had been active all my life. I had a laminectomy and a fusion on my lumbar spine, which was a success. I was walking again everything felt great and it lasted about 3 years then My arthritis in my back got worse, and my legs started to bother me again, the stenosis was moving up to. L3 so I ended up getting shots in my back. Over the next couple of years the arthritis became severe and so did my scoliosis, and I also have degenerative disc disease, so I have a terrible back that the Drs can’t do anything to fix because of all the problems, iand they just recommend facet joint shots and epidurals. I can do these shots about 3x a year and they do help. I am 78 years old and did not have problems with my legs and back until I turned 67. Although when I first went to the Dr about my legs and back and he diagnosed Stenosis he told me I didn’t just get the Stenosis I had it for a while, He was a Physitrist. After a few years I ended up with a Spine Surgeon who did the laminectomy.
