Our expert says:
Pinched nerves are usually only operated on if they can't be managed by physiotherapy and is causing loss of muscle function or severe pain. I am not sure what you mean by aorta being pinced in her spine - this is not possible - what she may have is a narrowing of the aorta and depending on how bad it affects her blood circulation may or may not need an operation - they usually put a "stent" or plastic tube in to keep the artery open.
See this article for information about the back operation: http://www.webmd.com/back-pain/discectomy-or-microdiscectomy-for-a-herniated-disc
She needs to see an orthopedic surgeon/ neurosurgeon for evaluation of her back and a vascular surgeon for an evaluation of the aorta problem. Depending on their findings, you need to discuss with them all the different options she has to alleviate the pain.
Hope this helps?
