I am 36 year old and recently diagnosed with disc herniation at all levels of lumbar. The symptoms i have is numbness in the left knee and some weakness. I just wanted to see if anyone had similar diagnosis and what kind of treatments did you take and what were outcomes. I am actively doing PT but also discussed with my Ortho Surgeon about possibility of having surgery. Since the herniation is at multiple locations i am really concerned if surgery at one location can solve this issue for me. The symptoms i have is manageable since i don't have pain but discomfort. I was wondering what would be implication of delaying surgery or future recovery?.
I appreciate any response and i am new users still trying to look for information which is already available.
