Hi, If your disc is very bad and you are unable to walk or losing muscle power in feet and/or losing control of your pee/poo then you will definitely need surgery. If medicines help control the pain and you are functional then you can avoid surgery and go for conservative methods
Next Steps
get Vitamin levels checked and take injectable supplement if vit D and B12 low
