I am 26 and a software engineer. From last 3 weeks there is tingling in my legs and have pain in lower thigh muscles. So, after taking some drugs by consulting a very good neurosurgeon, I went for MRI and had the following findings.
- Posterior disc bulging L4 L5 level crushing indentation on thecal sac and descending nerve roots
- Mild facetal arthopathy seen at lower lumbar region
Doctor said pain would be gone after 7-10 days of full bad rest and then my physio said it would fully be recovered after 3 months with proper exercise.
Now, after 10 days of complete bad rest, I don't feel tingling except I bent down with wrong angle accidentally and some weakness in legs. But the problem is when I sit on chair, I keep feeling some back pain though I can bare it easily for 1-2 hours. Is it normal?
Can I know how much time will it take for complete healing? I know this is slow process but very curious about physio's opinion on forums.
Thanks in advance
