Three Bulging Discs at T spine

Yesterday, after nine months of back pain, I was diagnosed as having three bulging discs at the T spine. I have been unable to lift anything heavy for months, and have subsequently been unable to work. This is not a work related injury and I am currently trying to determine if I need to quit my job. My employer has been very understanding and has reassured me that my job would be there when I was well enough to return. However, my job is very physical with a lot of lifting and repetitive movement.

Can anyone tell me if there are excercises that will get my back well enough for me to return to work? If so, what is the expected recovery time frame. According to one piece of advise I have received, if I do the wrong thing (i.e. lifting heavy things) I could tear anyone of these discs. When the injury first happened I had a fuzzy/numb sensation down one side of my back. This recurs everytime I over do it.

I would appreciate any advise on how to deal with this problem.

Sincerely,
Bev.
