I had severe stenosis resulting in nerve damage to my legs.

Customer Question

I had severe stenosis resulting in nerve damage to my legs. Had surgery (fusion)and the stenosis issue has been resolved. The nerve damage has regenerated to some extent, but I would like to see faster results approaching pre stenosis conditions.

When was your surgery? have you started physical therapy? Do you have numbness, weakness, pain? where and to what degree? did you receive a multiple level laminectomy/fusion with cage or what? which levels? How old are you, what is your body habitus, what medications do you take? Do you have a family history of spinal stenosis/osteoarthritis in the men in your family? Get back to me and I will reply.
