Hi there zoeyanth,
Welcome to the boards! Well, I'm not sure if I can offer much advice, but thought I'd let you know I can totally relate. I'm also 23 and going through this whole ordeal really stinks--I always thought people this young weren't supposed to have back problems, right? But, I have come to realize that this can happen to anyone, at any age.
Anyway, I recently had surgery to repair my herniated disc, but my main symptom was pain beginning in my butt and radiating down my leg--I actually never had any back pain through the whole ordeal. I am happy with the surgery--I still have some leg pain, but it is definitely better than before the surgery, so I'm glad I went through it.
So, you see, I can't really help you since our situations are different, but wanted to let you know that you're not alone! Have you considered getting a second opinion--I'm not sure if you mentioned that in your post or not, but that may be something you want to consider.
Good luck with everything and I will be interested to hear how things go for you.
