Hi, After reviewing my MRI scan report, Neurologist has advised me to undergo the surgery for herniated disc(L5S1) at my lower back(Lumbar spine) as soon as possible. Right now I am under medication(2-3 weeks) and observation. There is no specific date to undergo the surgery however if problem exacerbates then immediate surgery is required. After medication, my pain is little releived( out of min1-10max scale, I have the pain level of 3 only now as compared to previous level of 8),so do I need to undergo surgery or continue medication, considering continous medication may have other side effects. Thanks in advance for answering my question.
