Dear Doc. Sarah,
I was diagnosed with arach in 1993 after 19 years of pain. As everyone knows there is no point describing the treatment before the MRI scan as it would take too long and \"is very boring\" at this stage. Now Doc, since the first two ops in '75 and'80,I have had two more ops. for stenosis on upper and lower spine. My question is , is there any connection w
ith Arac and Spinal Stenosis?.
Very sincere thanks to all concerned for the teriffic site and thanks Doc. Sarah for all the imput.

What was done to releive your spinal stenosis? I was diagnosed with stenosis and then arachnoiditis. it seems to me an obvious connection as narrowing of spacw where inflammation occurs must make inflammation worse.

Hi, I had two decompression ops. They were quite sore but I can walk. I use a wheelchair for long distances and its great. I can actually do my shopping from the chair which is a blessing as I was finding walking very hard especially around shopping malls.
Sincerely, Theesa
