Numbness in vaginal area, butt cheek, anal area, diagnosed with herniated disc. Curable?

I had an MRI done a few months ago and was told i have a bulging disc in my L5-S1 and experienced all the pain that came with it, but about a month ago started to feel numbness in my vaginal area, and my left butt cheek is also numb and my anal as well, and was told that its because of my herniated disc. But was wondering if it could be more to it, and if the numbness will ever go away
