MRI showed disc bulge in L4-L5 and L5-S1 discs, recommended surgery. Non-surgical options?

I took MRI scanning and there is disc bulge in L4-L5 and L5-S1 discs which is touching the nerve roots . I was suggested to go for operation in which they will cut the bulged part of the disc. I am not for operation and am looking for non-surgical method to correct the problem. Could you please suggest me, what kind of treatment will suit me.

You can take medicines like pregabalin or dulexitine under supervision of a rheumatologist.
The other thing is proper exercises for the back.
