"Numerous procedures for my spinal stenosis"

About: St George's Hospital (Tooting) (London)

Having attended your clinic and been given numerous procedures (epidurals,facet injectionsx2) because of my age 73 and existing health problems it seemed that not much more than tablets could help me. The last doctor I saw decided it might help if I had the nerves in my lower back authorised I had the procedure and finally after years of pain I can now say that I although not pain free I am at a situation where my walking has vastly improved and my pain has decreased significantly,I am fully aware that the stenosis cannot be cured but I must congratulate your team for the help and perseverance afforded to me
