Thanks for your query.
The condition is in an advance stage. Hence, surgery is the ONLY option.
I strongly recommend that you go in for surgery AT THE EARLIEST, before irreversible damage to the spine and emerging nerves take place with life-long disabilities.
Pending early surgery, a 2-3 weeks' course of initial high dose of steroids
and tapered gradually in 3 weeks, may have transient but marginal relief.
Consult your doctor and apprise him of my opinion. I am certain that he will agree with me, order required tests, and- based on the reports- will prescribe suitable/modified treatment as advised.
