How to treat a dog suffering from paralysis?

I have a 5 year old male Miniature Dachshund. My dog is suffering from paralysis of back legs since 1 week(not even wagging his tail, but able to sit) after a fall from the staircase. We noted his weakness and immediately rushed to the vet, the vet diagonsed him as intervertebral disc disease. and suggested rest and some heat treatment to the back. We are doing this since one week, but there is no improvement. My dog cannot walk at all instead he crawls, this caused his hind legs some injury for which I m applying betadine. Now he is not having food or barking at all. He is completely sad. He is having loose motion too for which I clean him 3 times daily. Today he has developed some white boils underneath and cries in pain when I gave him a bath. The vet told me to apply antimicrobial cream. This has happened for a week now and is still going on. The facility in the vet hospital is very poor in my locality. Can you please tell me what shall I do? How long will it take for his paralysis to recover? Is this the end time for my dog?

do an Xray first and then consult ..need to find where the injury is exactly and how bad it is..keep him on dry place and do not put water on the boils which i assume might be hot spots...
