In brief: Difficult to know
I would recommend that if you are not going back to your initial doctors or they have nothing furhter to offer, that you seek out a tertiary care center with a very reputable program in back conditions.
You shold probably see a rehabilitation specialist and perhaps neurosurgeons and orthopedists who specialize in these "severe" case of back pain. Get more opinions and care. Don't give up!

Would try tertiary center in your State and if not amenable, consider a place like Mayo, Cleveland Clinic and other well know tertiary and Quaternery centers of expertise.

In brief: Yes
You will need full length spine films to see if you are off" balance" surgery is an option if you do not have sagital balance and have severe pain.
