hi and welcome to health care magic,
from the report that you have put up it is evident that you have stress on your lower back it would be better if you consulted a neurosurgeon he will let you know if a surgery is required immediately or if simple back strengthening exercises are enough once the back ache reduces and you do need to reduce your weight as your overweight for your height.
take care.
