L5 S1 disc herniation
I have L5 S1 disc herniation. Mild pain in left leg which sometimes shifts to right leg also. After a week of physiotherapy I feel a bit relief. Since I am a student, I have more of sitting work and am not able to sit for more than an hour. Should I go for microdiscetomy or continue with physiotherapy?
