herniated disc

I have L5-S1 herniated disc and weakness in my right ankle after MRI and checkup dated May 27, 2009.
Intermittent eectrifying shock felt first week of april lasted in 3 days and the rest of the days upto May 21, 2009 are manageable back pains with out weaknesss and numbness in the lower right extremities ( actually starting month of May, low back pain is gone only when forced stretched forward).
On May 22 the pain transferred to the buttocks, numbness and weakness felt until today even after i had a bed rest for 4 days and no heavy activity.
Q - Does my herniated disc resorbed in the natural process called resorption? Is it healed thats why i dont feel pain in the lumbar? How could i get rid of this numbness and weakness? Can i not play sports like tennis and basketball when im cured?

Knitted ankle support incorporating an anatomically contoured silicone insert lying posterior to the medial and lateral malleolus and over the front of the foot. Used to reduce swelling and soreness.
