Anybody have experience with this stenosis? I'm just starting to gather some information off the web.

He did want to refer me to a spinal group in the area but told him I wanted to research this first so I know what I'm talking about.
Sorry, Johnnie. The presence of spinal canal narrowing on MRI is not always associated or diagnostic of clinical spinal stenosis. Sometimes a neurologist or neurosurgeon can help your orthopedist sort that out.
In any case, best wishes for a speedy recovery.
