Hello doctor, thank you for opening this AMA post. My question is, what cases would be that last resort to consider a surgery? I have spinal stenosis due to L4-L5 disc hernations.

Expanding on the use of medications, I was prescribed gabapentin (300mg twice daily) for treating tingling and numbing due to spinal stenosis (L4-5). The symptoms although little less, they remain after almost a year and I am worried I will need to take them for the rest of my life which I know it is not advisable. I have tried Chiropractics, PT, injections, but it lingers along with the typical sciatica pain. In this case surgery would we indicated? Thank you!
