I will suggest try to get relife by medicine .surgery may or may not give you good results so this should be your last option .avoide bad posture ,Do not lift heavy objects, do not bend much. Do few physiotherapy for pain. Magnate therapy also helps alot. Improve you life style. Take homoeopathy medicine as they give relive from pain in long run. .surgery
