I am 27 years old. I have L5-S1 bread based right paracentral posterolateral forminal disc herniation with compression on S1 nerve root, bilateral neural foramina narrowing (R>L), thecal sac compression, spinal canal measures 5 mm. I have been doing physio exercises since 9 months. But still can not sit/stand for long and also can not freely bend forward and move upward after bending. What to do further? I am able to squat slowly without any pain. Should I continue to squat or stop it?

Stop squats. Try to use lumbar belt while bending n walking. Take proper treatment at physio clinic with traction n review your exercises as it's been long time your doing that. Call me for further discussion.
