Pain in the leg due to disc herniation. Tried Bethametson injection and celebrex. Need permanent cure?

Unfortunately, I got L4-L5-S1 discs herniation (as MRI shows 3.2 mm of 10.2 mm has been herniated) and I am feeling a bad pain in my right leg. I cannot walk and move. I am Professor in the university and have to go back to work soon. I used Bethametson injection , Celebrex and Pregabaline,but didn’t effect much. I will be glad to receive your advice. Regards YYYY@YYYY

Hello sir,You mentioned u have a severe back pain with radiating pain in right leg n u also have l 4/l 5/S1 disc herniations.I understand that urs is a busy job n u need to goback to work. But pls note that ur health is of utmost importance than any other thing.I request you to take absolute bed rest for 2-3days,which means that u need to lie down through out the day .you take physiotherapy for the back(preferably IFT) n also take analgesics like Tramadol 50mg+paracetamol 500mg twice a day for 5 days.continue pregabaline. late slowly go for ur work wearin a lumbar corset n at work place also try not to sit for long time n when ever possible just lie down n relax for a while.Dont use betametasone injections much.If the pain is so severe take medroltablets 4mg twice a day along wit tab pantaprazole 40 mg once aday for 5 days.I wish that ur pain should be relieved by this.
