How long will toe be numb?

Started by Aero on 12/08/2020 11:00am

Hi. I'm new here. My MRI says I have: L2 - L3 small broad disc bulge w/ flattening of thecal sac w/ mild foraminal narrowing.
L3 - L4 small broad disc bulge w/ flattening of thecal sac w/ mild foraminal narrowing.
L4 - L5 Broad disc bulge eccentrically larger on right in extraforaminal location, flattening of thecal sac, herniation of disc material in right lateral recess, foraminal location inferiorly migrated 13mm, Moderate facet arthropathy worse on right. Severe right and moderate left neural foraminal narrowing. There is contact of the traversing right L4 and L5 nerve roots.
L5 - S1 Broad disc bulge, mild neural foraminal narrowing.

Is this why my right toe's been numb for the past four weeks?

Prior to my toe being numb, I experienced pain in my right glute and down my leg into my foot that was so intense my hands tingled and I broke out into a cold sweat hyperventilating nearly passing out. (This occurred a number of times all the while I was souped up on Hydrododone, Tylenol and Flexril).

Do I need an operation on my back?
