In brief: Comments

Not sure what your question is, but in most cases, would handle this conservatively, if you are not progressively losing strength and muscle bulk, with intolerable pain.
These disks can desiccate and shrink if you can wait 9-10 months, and avoid surgery. An EMG test can objectify extent of nerve damage at this point.
