I have had numbness in a roughly elliptical area about 6 inches by 8 inches on the front and left side of my upper left leg.

I've had this condition for about 10 years, and I've always assumed that it has to do with compression of a disk in my lower back.  I believe it began when my second child reached 1 or 2 years old.  I used to carry both of my daughters up and down the stairs -- one in each arm -- from birth until my older girl was around 7 and my younger girl was around 5.  Recently I planted a number of heavy trees, and also spent time in a pool tossing my younger girl (now 10) repeatedly.  Is this treatable without surgery?
