In brief: Depends

The treatment options depends on how serious is the "spinal stenosis" and how much are those disc prolapse and also how much is the person symptomatic or having effects.
Surgery is reserved for serious disease. I would suggest you to discuss these findings and treatment options with your doctor.

In brief: Depends

If there are a great deal of symptoms not responding to conservative treatment, and specially if there is any symptoms related to bladder or sex organs, neurosurgical advise is necessary.
