From your history it looks like you have prolapsed disk. Surgery may be an option in some cases. As a rule, surgery may be considered if the symptoms have not settled after about six weeks or so. This is the minority of cases as, in about 9 in 10 cases, the symptoms have eased off and are not bad enough to warrant surgery within about six weeks.
You should yourself examined by a neurosurgeon, who can advice you MRI of spine and then the accurate diagnosis of disc prolapse and extent of damage can be found.
The aim of surgery is to cut out the prolapsed part of the disc. This often eases symptoms. However, it does not work in every case. Also, as with all operations, there is a risk from surgery. A specialist will advise on the pros and cons of surgery, and the different techniques that are available.
