Severe backache, better after resting. MRI done, surgery required. Will I be able to play after operation?

? Please ty Ive had backache for the past 3 months. I rested for a few days and I got a bit better but now it is terrible. I had an MRI and my Dr. said I had to have a surgery; however, Im terribly unwilling to do so. I m afraid of this surgery alot. Im fond of sports and Ive heard I won t ever be able to do sports after this operation.Is that right?

Thanks for writing to us.
Back pain can be due to many causes. I need to have a look at the MRI report to know the cause of your pain. Only then can i suggest you regarding the further treatment required.
However most of the back pains can be taken care of with the help of appropriate medicines and regular physiotherapy.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
