Hi there!

Well, back issues could affect the nerves that supply the other parts of the body such as legs; while the symptoms could result from inflammation, residual nerve compression, further degeneration etc. In inoperable/ incurable cases, pain management would be a suitable option. I would suggest considering a review with your treating doctor and possibly considering an evaluation by a pain management specialist for suggestion of an appropriate management plan.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
