Dear sir as Spinal MRI shows no change and does not shoes lumbar stenosis you has nothing to be worrying.Syrgery will reliaf the pain.Maybe you can try lumbar cortico disc infiltration before surgery.Surgery has to be undertaken not for pain but if motor deficits or urinary complications are present.Wish you all the best
