Spinal Stenosis

I just had my third round of injections on 4/3/14.  Does anyone on this site deal with Spinal Stenosis, and if so, did you have the injections (epidurals), and how well did they work for you?
I can tell a little relief in my back, but my legs seem to ache more now than before.  Doctor has my on Percocet 7.5/325.  I take 2 in the morning, and 2 after dinner.  I have found that eating helps reduce the side effects of Percocet.
So I feel blessed.  I hope I hear some good news about others who have Spinal Stenosis .
Have a blessed day everyone.

I had spinal stenosis of the neck area. I don't remember where. I had been under the care of an orthopedic surgeon who did surgery on my neck. He replaced the bad bone with cadaver bone and worked on my back two weeks later. I can't say enough about this man. He did a great job. My only problem is scar tissue with nerves on the back. Recommend an orthopedic surgeon to look into this problem. Second opinions never hurt.
Due to DJD I can no longer get steroid injections because it did damage to my bones. Recovering nicely after many a doctor.

Thanks madman.  That's good news about your neck!  I've been thinking about this laser surgery.  I've done a lot of research and there's a clinic close to where I live.  They claim they can make a 1inch incision, do the work, and have you up and walking within a few hours.   I have

I had those injections done and they made my back worse than before. Finally I found a wonderful surgeon who help to relieve the pain the injections and pills couldn't. Good Luck.
