In brief: Speak to your

Surgeon about repeating a MRI with contrast to evaluate surgical outcome to make sure adequate decompression and no recurrence or new disc issue.
Sometimes , there may be ongoing issues that may or may not be permanent and a urodynamics test may help to evaluate this situation further if MRI is negative.

In brief: Oliguria

Urinary symptoms are often associated with cauda equina syndrome.
However, if you note new or worsening symptoms following surgery, it may reflect a new concern like urinary tract infection, adverse effects of medications , nerve injury or ureter laceration. Discuss with surgeon.
