I was diagnosed 2 years ago with Spinal Stenosis, had a cage put in 4 & 5. After the operation I couldn't walk right. After about 10 minutes of walking I would find one of my legs would kind of drag. If I want to walk faster my legs can't walk faster. I am not really having back pain. I just have an aching when I've been on my feet awhile. Lately, I find the only relief is laying down. A nerological surgeon and my orthopedic surgeon want to operate again. A milogram showed more stenosis. In my first operation another orthopedic surgeon did he had said after the operation I had a severely compressed nerve and he scrapped out the arthritis. He did not understand my walking problem. My milogram shows some stenosis in my upperback now. My problem of walking has a nerologist, md., orthopedic surgeons - 2 stumped. I'm worried if I have the operation and they want to put a larger cage in and take out the old one, this might not have anything to do with my walking problem.
