Obtain a consult with a neurosurgical or orthopedic physician for recommended treatment. "Severe stenosis" at L5/S1 may require surgical intervention.

Dr Berryman provides excellent advice. There is a need to uncover the precise pain generator and no indication for further injections at this point
