Brief Answer:
It could be meralgia paresthetica

Detailed Answer:
Hi I am Dr Gopal Goel Orthopedic Surgeon.
Spondylolisthesis if not troubling you then there is no need for operation at present.
Your current problem - burning in right thigh is likely to be due to a condition called meralgia paresthetica. It has no direct or indirect relation to spondylolisthesis.
I suggest pain killers ,and a combination of pregabalin and methycobalamine.
Thanx for the question. Please feel free to ask any other question.
