Thank you for your quick reply. My pain started a year back. On that time, it was paining like hell but now I will give it 3-4 on a scale of 1-10. Yes, the pain radiates from back to left leg, over the past two weeks it has reduced up to the calf of left leg. After 45-60 minutes of walking or 60-90 minutes of sitting on chair the pain becomes unbearable. My shoulders became uneven. There is no sign of weakness in legs. I have attached my MRI and x-ray reports.
My medical history details are, My first visit was a year ago to doctor for the pain. He suggested me not to lift weight and lean forward. He prescribed me Acenac P, Toprazole, Rolosol gel for 3 months. After three months my pain was gone and there was no problem at all. My pain started again two months back and I visited same doctor. He asked me to go for an MRI and prescribed Nucoxia-MR, Pyrigesic 650 and Omez. After seeing my MRI reports, he gave Indocap SR, Opara-Semi, Rablet 20 and Meganeuron OD plus. He advised me to use Neoprene back support lumbar belt and 21 days phsiotherapy interferential therapy (IFT) and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) over lower back. After ten days he prescibed me D-Kool, Dolo 650 and Axogurd SR for two months. But I am not satisfied with the improvement. Whenever I asked him how much time will it take, he never assured me. My age is 24 and I am a software developer. Due to this problem I have left my job. This not only making me physically weak but it also affected my career. So, please look into this matter deeply and suggest me what should I do?
I have attached my x-ray of LS spine both flexion and extension view. Please inform me does the condition need surgery? How much time will it take to get heal? Please suggest the best for me. Thank you.

It is normal to experience reddish brown discharge for 4-5 days post cervical polypectomy, but it should not cause any back pain per se unless there has been a secondary infection or vaginitis or bacterial vaginosis which is quite likely with vinegar smell.
