I would agree with your surgeon that there is no evidence of mechanical root compression. This is probably a stretch radiculopathy. If you are uncomfortable, you could consider a transforaminal epidural steroid at the surgical level. History and careful examination might be helpful to point to the exact level but generally, the suspected root likely was near the surgical level.
