I was just diagnosed with severe spinal stenosis (C5/6). The Dr said that due to the severity of the stenosis, he would recommend surgery as soon as possible. Surgery being to remove a portion of the disk to make room for the spinal cord. MRI indicates that there is no more room in the channel that houses the spinal cord so any trama may result in nerve damage. I am requesting a 2nd opinion. Does this diagnosis sound reasonable or extreme?
