Two torn annular and bulging disc

MRI shows my L3/L4 and L5/S1 have tears and L4/L5 is bulging.  Two years ago only L3/L4 had a tear.  Pain is consistant.  I am going in for cortisone injections soon already did PT with no sign of improvement  I feel certian I will have to have surgery.  What kind of proceedure would I have to have and how long is the recovery time?  I am 35 years old.
