low back surgery and employment after

I have to get surgery on L4/L5 in my lower back they want to fuse it and put a metal plate. I've had constant sciatic nerve pain from my back to the bottom of my right foot but severe pain in my hip joint sometimes my knee. I have been putting of the surgery because i am a housekeeper and i can barely do my job now so I don't think ill be able to go back to housekeeping after. Does any have any suggestions for help getting trained for a different job. I barely scrape by financially right now and i have been on the verge of getting fired due to my limitations and i don't know what to do.
