Thank you for posting your query.
It is reassuring to note that your doctor feels surgery is not required, which means the nerve compression is not severe.
For nerve pain and tingling, medications such as pregabalin
If medications do not help, you can go for epidural nerve block
injections, which can be given by an anaesthetist or a pain specialist.
Please continue the physiotherapy
Wishing you good health,
