3 herniated / bulging disks.Dr wanted to do surgery right away. I waited 2 months then wanted the surgery- doctor then wanted to wait. After injections I haven't heard from doctor. Had one appointment and he acted like I was interupting his day. Need to find a better doctor

I have 3 toes on my left foot that are numb all the time. My back is weak. Both my legs/ feet swell
