I don't want to give you any false hope, but a similar thing happened to me 20 years ago the very first time I tried to deadlift. Brutal pain to the point I couldn't even breathe without it hurting. Like a complete ****ing idiot I went to a chiropractor, and $86 later it was even worse.
Later that evening my aunt came by with some Relafen samples from the Doctor's office she worked at. 20 minutes later the pain was gone, and it never returned. I didn't mess around with deadlifting again until a few years later, and I sure as hell didn't round my lower back anymore.
I am hesitant to post this as could come off as irresponsible attempt at dispensing medical advice, but you might want to look into before going under the knife. Hopefully you'll get lucky like I did.
