I have all the symptoms thereof
However I had a spinal fusion done in Feb 2017
I'm afraid my back pain has only deteriorated
Can I get treatment to assist despite the fusion
Currently I find walking difficult and painful

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

For the benefit of our readers, spinal stenosis is the narrowing of the spinal canal. As the spinal canal narrows, it adds pressure on the spinal cord and nerves, and causes pain in the low back and legs.

Do you have this diagnosis, Anon? What condition did you have that caused a spinal fusion? You will need to talk to your doctor about your options.
