Thanks for your query.You have been suffering from severe back ache and diagnosed to have Slipped Disc.You have not mentioned the level of slipped disc in your statement.It is important to to know before you take a dicision of surgery.In the mean while you can try following measures
1) Have a Yoga for 1/2 in the morning a
especialy for back .This will help to increase the strength of muscles of the back
2)Avoid forward bending
3Avoid lifting heavy objects.
If the pain is very severe consult some Orthopedic surgeon and take some pain killers as per his advise.Physiotherapy to the back will help to relieve spasm of the back muscles.If your pain persists even after trail of all the measures you will have to go for surgery of ( Spinal Cord Decompression) Laminectomy.
