  1. Any one or all of these can be the cause of your pain. As far as wanting to do surgery, I recommend you write your questions down and ask your doctor to go over them with you. You should have a full understanding of what is to be done and the expectations post operatively. Then you can make the decision that is right for you. If you are still unsure, get another opinion.Good luck
