Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
The decision regarding surgery for disc prolapse
is a clinical decision and cannot be done based on an MRI
report alone. This decision will depend on a number of factors like:
- severity of symptoms
- degree of disability
to the patient
- risk of further nerve damage
due to the disc prolapse
- the choice of the patient
So, I would advise you to have a detailed discussion about the treatment options available with your treating doctor and then make an informed decision.
