My mother has been suffering from acute back pain and leg pain for the past one year. She is unable to stand or walk for a long time. She is 73 years old. Also, she has type 2 diabetes and high BP. Her MRI revealed a diffuse bulge of L4-L5 disc with ligamentum flavum hypertrophy causing severe canal stenosis with compression over transversing and existing nerve roots. What is the meaning of above? What treatment is necessary for her now?
