Thanks for the query. I think you dont need any surgery. MRI
said mild narrowing of the lateral recess which may cause leg pain however it usually get better with medicine and physiotherapy
. Low back pain
is generating from the bad disc. It usually get better over a period such as few weeks (4-6 weeks). You are not a candidate for discectomy
surgery. If she does not get better in next few months (unlikely) then we may have to consider doing total discectomy followed by spinal fusion
or disc replacement. At present i would suggest to try medicine such as antiinflammatory and muscle relaxants with physion modalities like IFT which will definitely improve her pain.
