Re: Help with my Dad's Situation, Any alternatives? DRX9000?

sounds almost identical to mine. he has some stenosis(narrowing of the spinal canal where the spinal cord runs thruogh, a paiful condition) he has degeneritive disc's which is common, he has disc's encroaching his nerve roots that exit through vertabrae due to the degen disc most likely and those nerves serve his legs herfore producing pain and numbness in legs. usaully wait till you cant stand it before surgery. how bad is he? can he walk still? im not a dr. and not giving advice but he should go to pain management too. hope this helps bro. you sound like a good son.
