Memory loss, lower back pain, sciatic nerve damage, disc degeneration. Micro discectomy done. Treatment?

I forget things constantly dont remember why I walk into a room... I have alot of pain in my lower back, I had a microdiscectomy on May 15. Still have alot of pain. I spend alot of time sleeping and still feel very tired. My foot is still numb from the nerve damage to the sciatic nerve . Doc says I have a disease... I can t think of the name of it right now but it has to do with disc deterioration. There goes the memory again... I have a rough time talking on the phone to people and try to hibernate at home as much as possible. I am not working right now due to the surgery but I can t help but feel there is so much more to my illness . I just don t know what it is. I have no money... and can t afford anything right now... I have been off work for 3 months!
