    Re: so how bad is this MRI and stenosis?

    Hi, First I would like to know if you know anything about stenosis? Stenosis means narrowing. You should go to a site MerckManual.com and you can find out alot of information regarding stenosis and about the spine as well. Check ssome of the othr sites that are listed here between posts and there is a good deal of information there. I have thoracic stenosis and lumbar stenosis but not cervical spinal stenosis. I hope this or these sites will provide you with some good information. Good luck to you and keep on coming back to this site if you can't find what you are looking for.
