Health Query

I am 30 Year old women having spine (disc) issue. According to my MRI report ?Posterior and left paracentral disc extrusion at L5-S1 level superior migration causing compression on left existing nerve?. Due to this the toes of my left foot has lost power restricting dorsiflexion. There is no back pain and I am able to move and walk freely without any issue. The numbness and sensation have shown recovery after 15 days of physiotherapy. My doctor has advised for surgery but I am reluctant to go for it. My two questions are 1) Whether it is possible to get recovery without surgery? If yes what precautions should be taken? 2) I fear further damage due to this nerve compression. Whether there are chances of further damage due to this if I don?t go for surgery?
