Next step?

Hi everyone!
I have been dealing with an injured back since November. I found out that I have three disc herniations L5 S1,L4 L5 and T12 L1. I assume the lower two herniations are what is giving me the sciatica issues as I have had numb and tingling left foot since late January even after I had spinal Injection in March to ease the inflammation. I have pain on and off again even still but the numbness and tingling have stayed and been pretty constant. My question is if anyone thinks my condition may require surgery? I see my neurosurgeon tomorrow to see what he says my next steps are.
