On July 28, 2003, I had surgery for spinal stenosis. Since then I still have back pain and stiffness and my legs are getting weaker ny the day. I have had a MRI, Mylegram & CT Scan since my surgery. The surgean says he doesn't see what is causing it. I have had a nerve block on both sides of the L2 level and physical therapy. My therapist is concerned about the weakness. I do exercises everyday on my exercise ball and I ride a stationary bike, but I just don't seem to be improving. I also have scholiosis at the L2 level. My physical therapist has told me that my right hip is also rotated backward. Everytime, she got it put back in place, it would go right back out. She said the ligaments and muscles are not strong enough to keep it in place. Therefore, my right leg is about 3/4" longer than my left. It seems no matter what I do, I'm not getting any better. PLease give me your opinion on what I should do. Thank you.
