Dear Dr Nina: Does back surgery have a good success rate?

Q: I have recently been diagnosed with bulging discs and have been advised that, after an MRI, I may need surgery. I know I don’t have the final details yet but I was wondering if I could get your opinion on whether or not back surgery is a good idea. I have a low level of pain a lot of the time, and I would take paracetamol and ibuprofen together about a week out of every month. A few people have mentioned to me that back surgery should be avoided at all costs. What is your experience of patients who have had similar surgery?
