Hi,
Generally it is amenable to surgery by a good spinal surgeon. I would urge you to seek a second opinion from another neurosurgeon and get it rectified. You have tried all the pain medications and procedures and I suggest you explore the option of surgery from another doctor. Unless there are absolute contraindications, it should be a possibility.
