Dear Sir/Madam,
Thanks for seeking help on your issue; I have gone through your symptoms, and i would like to tell you that spine surgery is not a one time solution of all your problems, any spine surgery without change of lifestyle can lead to occurrence of symptoms as it can be seen in your case. i would advice you to go through surgery to get the disc removed if your pain is not in control. also after be cautious and follow all the instructions given by your doctor of physio and follow all so that these things do not reoccur in future.
I hope I have been able to provide you with a satisfactory solution, if you want to clear any doubts about my opinion, feel free to contact.
Special note- Any medication prescribed needs to be taken after consultation with your personal doctor only.
Thanks
