You need to have an MRI of the lumbar spine done and please upload it.
Unless the MRI shows a huge slipped disc or other major issues with the spine, you should not got choose surgery. Treatments such as physiotherapy, lumbar traction, laser therapy,back strengthening exercises etc can help.Try using a lumbar belt. Surgery for spine problems may help but in some cases does no good at all. So surgery benefits vs. harm needs to be evaluated properly.
