Back injury
its not possible to get a medical diagnosis on your condition on a public message board. medicine can't cure or fix every problem.
surgery often leaves the patient worse off. doctors have to balance the chance for improvement with the chance you'll be worse off. if your disability isn't critical, maybe your arthritic condition increases the risk that a surgery will make your situation worse.
In many cases time is the most significant factor in the recovery process; whether yours is one of those is unknown.

an atty gets paid for settling claims; not for getting you treatment. their fee is paid from your disability $$ not from your doctor bills. generally your disability is higher early in the case and much lower later.
their fee is a percentage and therefore worth more the sooner you settle.

ratings are used to calculate additional disability payments and based on your permanent impairment with 100% being totally disabled and 0% as having no permanent impairment.

write your questions down and take them with you to your Pain Management appointment so you won't forget to ask. the doctors there should have all your records and might be able to give you some better information.
