Without seeing you or the MRI/CT scan I will assume you meet the criteria for surgery. I would probably decompress and fuse the level. Decompression alone with a large central disc with stenosis often does badly due to the large amount of the disc material that we have to remove. So the q is how to approach this. An anterior ( through the tummy) decompression and fusion or disc replacement are great procedures but have a risk, albeit small, of sexual dysfunction in males. In you I would do a minimally invasive TLIF with posterior instrumentation. But again it would depend on a lot of other factors that your treating surgeon will discuss with you in their office. Rest assured there are good treatment options for you.
Good luck. Greg.

Best to talk to your doctor. Likely to be a het rash but sometimes medications can cause a slight rash especially those used to help with pain.
