Hi 

Yes, it does sound as if surgery will be necessary, because the nerves are being affected and if there is too much pressure on the nerves for a long time it can cause lasting damage. The surgery could give him great relief and usually doctors will not do back surgery if it is not absolutely necessary. If you are concerned then I suggest that you go for a second opinion, but to me it does sound as if the surgery will be necessary. Good luck.
