Orthopaedic Surgeon Dr. Narayan Hulse's  Response
You may benefit from physiotheraphy. Flexion (bending) of the trunk will increase the effective volume of the spinal canal. That is why some people feel better while cycling etc. However these are unpredictable. If you also have some neurological signs in the leg you may be better of with surgery. Ask your physio or surgeon for flexion exercises.
