Hi and thanks for the query,
I do think the opinion of neurosurgeon is mandatory in this case. Recurrent compression and trauma to the nerves at some point might lead to long lasting nerve damage. CT scans and MRi scans, coupled with good neurosurgical evaluation could be helpful in making an appropriate decision and on time. Surgery save , rather than waiting for late complications to set in. Thanks and kind regards
