Smile Re: Disc Protrusion L5/S1

THIS GOES FOR OUR FRIEND cfiiman, who raised the following questions,

Could someone please help me with the following questions I have:

1. Is the micro surgery the logical next step if I want to be done with this?
2. Should I give PT a try before that?
3. Should I give another epidural a shot if this first one does nothing?
4. I know that once a disc ruptures it will never be the same, but can't you return to a mostly normal life just being careful not to over do it?
5. Are all sports out, wife and I wanted to take up tennis?

I'm sure there will be others but this is all I can think of at the moment sitting here. I'm truly sorry that any of us have to go through this, it seems cruel and unfair every time I try to do something simple and have a hard time because of the pain, and I know a lot of you all struggle with the same thing. thanks for any help.
