I am sorry for the symptoms you are suffering
It is recommended that you put a lumbar fortress and use pain killer to avoid pain
In my opinion if there is no spinal stenosis or motor deficits avoid surgery.
I think you will be fine if you protect yourself from physical stress, use lumbar fortress and pain killer
Best regards
