Welcome to Healthcaremagic.
I do not recommend surgery unless pain is severe and is not relieved by conservative measures. First you should make sure that you do not lift any heavy items. Besides, if you are overweight
, you must reduce your body weight.
When sleeping, lie on either sides with your knee bent. Avoid sitting or standing for more than an hour. Physiotherapy
can also help relief the pain.
If pain is not relieved by the above measures, you can take an analgesic
for 3-5 days.
Surgery does not cure the original problem however the surgeon only removes the part of the disc causing pressure on the nerves. However, it can be the only solution if pain is persistent and severe.
