Hi Joanne and Welcome!
The determination to have surgery is just not the pain itself but what else may be wrong. If you have a herniation that is into the spinal cord or if you have nerve impingement the doctor may tell you surgery is the only way to go. That may not stop your pain however as I found out.
Listen to your doctors and get second opinions
Take Care and Be Well
Tom
