Spinal Stenosis diagnosis

My issue of lower back pain was not resolved until Dr. Cajator ordered an MRI in the summer of 2022, after we moved here. No one earlier asked me to get this imaging done. It clearly showed spinal stenosis. It is an entirely different issue of trying to fix this. After trying several options with no success, my remaining choice is surgery. We're still discussing this, because it is a big deal at my age (80).
