Hi my name is chris and im 19 in july of 2014 i was diagnosed with a Herniated disc I've been dealing with the back/leg pain ever since. As of April 2015 i could manage the pain but it does hurt from time to time. I'm wondering if i should consider surgery or should i wait it out longer? Ive gotten alot better as of july 2014 but not fully. Am i healing? Also if i was to get surgery will it be a bad decision in the years to come?
