Spinal stenosis advice needed please!


I have been diagnosed with spinal stenosis. I have numbness from the knees down in both legs and arms. I had an abnormal Emg been lumbar sacral polyradiculopathy and now have vibrations between my legs. I can't sit, stand, for more than 10 minutes without my feet going numb. I can't walk more than a block without being in pain. I recently had so much inflammation that it rendered me immobile. Dr gave me 15mg of mobic and Percs and I've been home from work. I also have lumbar lordosis and several herniated discs. My question is, do u think that surgery would help me? I have had injections and I am terrified of surgery! But am finding it difficult to live this way. I have been dealing with back pain since I've been a teenager. I am 50 years old wife and mother of 3. Any advice would be appreciated.
