if i need i can ask u this thing about my leg on another question im just glad u are here to ask
Ok with the nerve compression it will often cause leg issues including pain, tingling, and various other problems. This varies greatly depending on the exact amount of pressure and the extent of the injury. Normally as it will describe in the links once the pressure is removed the symptoms start to go away almost immediately.
The problem take some time to be totally gone but the improvement is often noticed right after surgery.
Spinal stenosis is the narrowing of spaces in the spine which causes pressure on the spinal cord nerves.
This would be addressed likely at the same time as the other issues and would not require more surgeries.
