i suffered my first attack of slip disc about 2 years ago. was on bed rest for 10 days. was up and walking but since then there has been a constant pain/numbness/tingling feeleing travelling down my leg. about 5 months agao got another attack, MRI showed l4/l5 herniated disc, severe compression of the nerve. tried physio for about 2 months with little effect. most of the docs have advised surgery but i am still not convinced about it and am confused. should i wait or should i go in for the surgery?
