Foramina Stenosis

I have severe bilateral foramina stenosis in my lumbar and neck region. In 2012, I had a laminectomy in my neck and lumbar region. Not sure, but maybe the foramina stenosis was caused by scar tissue from the laminectomies. I have had 30 hours of physical therapy, 2 epidurals, and 2 nerve blocks. Nothing has helped, and having trouble walking. Now, they want to do a DVR, but I think a foraminectomy would be better. What do you think would be best? Thanks so much, dede

If you disagree on treatment modality, you must talk it over with your doctor. If the doctor is not satisfactory, then find another and seek that opinion.

Treatment choices are a decision you must make with your doctor. No one here understands your case or your history and can offer appropriate advice.

Best wishes.
