congenital spinal stenosis
I have congenital spinal stenosis. I had surgery for a hernietaed disc and they also scraped the stenosis, this was 5 yrs ago. 2 yrs ago i went to have an epidural injection and the dr couldnt get the needle into the spine because of the narrowing. eventually after 40 min she thought she got it in and i ended up with a spinal headache. The dr recommeded that i have something like a pacemaker implanted into the hip area that woould help with the pain. I didnt follow up on that because i ended up in the hospital for neck surgery. Does anyone else have trouble standing in one spot longer than five minutes or so, also walking is something that is hard to be on my feet for along period of time. I get relief lying on my side. sitting for to long also gets me hurting. I cannot lay flat on back. I am 48 yrs old and concerned what will i be like in 5 or 10 yrs. My husband tells me to try for disability, but I dont want to. I feel I am to young for that. any suggestions?
