Dear friend, welcome to HCM !

It depends on your affection of lifestyle.
Though i need to see all your reports to comment accurately, generally if physio has helped you greatly and life is easy, can avoid surgery.
if despite physio, you feel trouble working, you can go for surgery.
In suitable cases, nowadays , they (spine surgeons) are doing microscopic spine surgeries under local anaesthesia, where you walk out the same day.
It is very much available in India. We have it.

pl. post all reports using the site's uplaoding application on your right.
Take care and please keep me informed of your progress.
Good Luck !
