Hi. Welcome to Healthcaremagic

There are many ways to handle the pain from Lumbar Disc prolapse. You can get monthly steroid shots and use pain medicines as needed (Like Aceclofenac and Ibuprofen, Pracetamol). This is conservative management. Try to maintain the pain by medicines and physiotherapy as much as possible.

If the pain is interfering with your life style and very essential activities in a day, then go for surgery. There are different surgical options. The Orthopedics will discuss that. Surgery is quite safe and very effective for the pain.

Regards, Dr. Jagdish
