I have a disc herniation at L4-L5 and nerve impingement. The pain is in right lower back area. Finished a couple months of physio therapy , was on ibuprofens for a while and then got a nerve root block shot in November....The pain has now disappeared. I know it is just temporary relief. My doctor has suggested that he will do microdiscectomy, is that the right procedure?
