Customer Question
I have stenosis down...

I have stenosis down to 6mm in my C5-6 spine. I'm a 71 year old wheelchair bound female. Remainder of spine has bulging disc and a lot more. I'm mostly concerned about the C5-6 stenosis. I wouldn't want surgery on any other part of spine. Pain in both arms,gait problems, incontinence, eating with bib and spoon due to tremors.

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?

Swelling in feet. Chiropractic helps but I think he's getting a little worried about adjusting this area.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Amp of RLleg 2008 due to MRSA. HTNy H
