By the radiologist’s description, “left lateral recess narrowing and disc contact on the descending left S1 nerve root”, it sounds like a redo surgery at this level could be helpful. I must remind you that radiologists can describe things differently than a spine surgeon so collaboration with a spine surgeon should be taken.

A selective nerve root block would be helpful to insure the root is the cause of your symptoms. See:
