Well, without knowing the relevant clinical details or a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to comment specifically on the situation or suggest a management plan. With nerve compression at the spinal level, typically a decompression surgery would be advised to relieve the pressure, except in situation where it is considered high risk. I would suggest considering a detailed evaluation by a neurologist or a neurosurgeon for suggestion of an appropriate management plan. In cases where a surgery is contraindicated, it may be advisable to see a pain management specialist for adequate pain control.
Hope this is helpful.
