I have recently been diagnosed with retrlistheis of the lumbar spine with stenosis in the lumbosacral spine. What exactly is this? I have also been advised that surgery needs to be done since the verebrae are slipping down and impinging on the sciatic nerve. I was told it would be necessary to put a steel rod in my spine. Please advise.
