Does spondylolisthesis cause swelling in the left leg?

No: Most likely no. It would have to be a high grade slip to push against the blood vessels to and from your leg. If you have swelling of one foot/ankle, talk to your primary doctor. It can be a sign of a blood clot. ...Read more

I have 1. Grade 2 spondylolisthesis of L5 over l1. 2. Mild unequal leg length 3. Deviation of nose and have a bit of facial asymmetry. Would these be interrelated? Would this cause muscle pain in luq?

Probably not: Mild leg length inequality, deviated nasal septum and facial assymetry are very common. So, those traits are difficult to associate with gr ii listhesis, which is not very common in a young person like yourself. Anterior abdominal pain is unlikely to be related to it either. ...Read more

Depends on multiple : Factors. It appears your symptoms are mainly leg pain, and hence a surgeon may have decided that the l45 was the only level with stenosis or pressure on nerve, and wanted to to do only what was needed at the time, and not what maybe needed in the future.

Fusion: Decompression alone is unlikely to resolve the issue and is likely to worsen the situation in the long run. Furthermore there are now more options then just posterior fusion, an anterior approach may also be an option but a good surgical opinion or opinions are needed. ...Read more
