I was diagnosed with Spinal Stenosis and Spondelosisis a few years ago and after about a year the pain got so bad I was all set for surgery. Fortunately, I had an argument with the Neurologist about him keeping me waiting 3 hours and I went in search of another.
Found an Orthopaedist with sense enough to take an X-Ray and a fresh MRI. Turned out that while I have the Stenosis, 90% of the pain was an arthritic hip treatable so far with Cortisone injections and Vitamin I.
Watch out for Doctors who are all memory and no brains.
...who rectified two friends back problems, one of which was very serious.
I'll be getting another MRI and then my neurosurgeon will decide the course of action. He says if surgery is needed, its not very invasive and I'll be back to work in two days.
That sounds better than a chronic bad back.
reelsmith's axiom: Its going to be used equipment when I sell it, so it may as well be used equipment when I buy it.
