Is it possible that disk hernia (L4-L5) retracts by itself in time? Or is it that the only option for this is surgery?
Yes. Herniated discs can shrink down in size over time and pain will reduce. There are a number of treatment options before surgery will be considered. Gentle exercise such as swimming or cycling. Physiotherapy with manipulation, massage and exercises to build up core muscles can help. Pain killers as needed. If these measures fail, surgery may be needed.

I have a gap in l4 and l5 gets lot of pain while sitting for long period
Thanks for the query
I dont exactly know what you mean by gap between 14 and 15. I am guessing you are having chronic back pain. Here are my suggestions to you
1. Do not sit for more than 30 min, take small strolls around the office and strech
2. Tab Naproxen is an ideal drug for pain, take once a day for 3 days. DO not take it for more than 5 days
3. Core muscle exercises
