Is there a window? Going to have decompression surgery after 8 months. Anyone had success with this after 8 month period?

Late May 2010 I had the classic Sciatica symptoms. MRI confirmed a prolapsed disc L4-L5, right sided prolapse. Went down the conservative therapy route diclofenac, physio, acupuncture and cocodomol. After 4 months, no significant improvement. Requested to go down surgery route, declined a third nerve root injection. I will be have a discetomy on 2nd Febuary 2011.
Any advice, experience and suggestions are all gratefully received.
