?surgical decompress: Do you have signs of lumbar stenosis? Are you experiencing bladder or bowel problems. Is your stenosis at t-10 to t-12 the only focal problem. See a neurological surgeon, evaluate the potential for surgical relief. If you do nothing, the prognosis could be indeed dismal. Please get proactive and seek treatment.
