Well, it would be difficult to comment specifically on the situation without knowing the relevant clinical details or a detailed clinical evaluation. The activities and the workload may need to be reduced in a few situations, especially when there is pressure on the neural structures. I would suggest discussing the situation and the suggested management plan in detail with your treating doctor.
Hope this is helpful.
