Lumbar Disc bulge with nerve compression and getting right hip, leg pain

Suffering from right hip and right leg pain. Some times getting mild pain on entire right side.
Took MRI scan of lumbar back and found out that. Diffuse posterior disc bulge with ligmentum flavum thickening at L4-L5 , L5-S1 with impinging nerve and mild bulge at L3-L4 with compressing nerve.
This is little shocking for me that coz i am just 25 yrs old. I took complete three weeks bed rest and physiotherapy exercise got relief from pain. But last week i came back to work, every day i have to sit for 8 to 9 hrs. Now again i am getting mild pain through out the day and strong pain at evening. I am wearing lumbar sacral belt and sitting with back support.

Also i am continuously doing lower back exercise suggested by physiotherapist. My ortho doctor suggested that if getting severe pain and no relief with physiotherapy then to go for steroid injections. But i don't want that injections.
Before that I am having lot of doubts and questions.?

1) This disc bulge is severe issue.? Can this issue will be solved by doing physiotherapy lower back exercise or it will result in some operations?
2) Whether This bulge with increase and result to herniation or disc degeneration.?
3) How long it will take for me to get rid of this issue and again start my normal life.? Can this will be problem for my entire rest of life.?

Had very mild accident around one year back, because of that my right hip and thigh swollen little bit. I consulted ortho doctor immediately and they examined and said muscle strain, the suggested muscle relaxant and gel also they suggested some exercise. I got relief after that.

From that incident onwards whenever i travel for long journey by sitting posture, fast running, jumping and playing gives me strong pain on hip and right leg also swollen little bit. Again have to do apply gel and some specific exercise for relief.

Last month again i travelled long journey by sitting posture, after that i got severe pain not like before. Consulted doctor again, followed same procedure as above it didn't help. Finally Took MRI Scan of lumbar back .
