Annular tear pain posterior!!!!!!

Hi I am new to this forum and glad 2 be here.. My problem is that I have a posterior central disc protrusion and associated annular tear at l5-s1.. The MRI does not state the size of the disc bulge or tear.. I have had PT and Just went through my 3rd Epidural injections which neither has worked.. this is my second round of both in last 2yrs.. the pain doc reffered me to a neurosurgeon but did say the disc and sciatica from it can b fixed.. However the annular tear that is leaking out will prob not be fixed.. From what I understand this fluid irritates the sciatic nerve as well.. has anyone had similar problems or what should my options be?? Thank you
