greetings friend.progressive spinal stenosis
with pain and neurological deficits are a concern that can result in paralysis
if not treated surgically. Most of the time back surgeries turn out to be more harm than good, but if you do not have hip arthritis
or a hip problem as a cause of your pain and symptoms, your MRI should show spinal stenosis compressing the nerve
if it is responsible for your pain. I would get multiple opinions from a neurosurgeon before undergoing surgery, because sometimes they have different surgical approaches and sometimes the conservative approach is better. cheers.
