How bad is this cavity?

Hello,

I went to the dentist last month, he told me we had to do some fillings and we made another appointment for April 17th, so in about 11 days now. I didn't ask him how bad the cavity was and only saw it after looking in the mirror after my appointment.

The tooth is my second molar on my left side, upper jaw. It is on the back of my tooth (where the tongue is). When I go over it with my tongue it feels rough, but not like there is a hole in it. I also have no pain and it doesn't feel sensitive at all when I drink someone cold or eat something sweet. This tooth already has a filling on the top. My biggest fear would be a root canal or extraction. Am I overreacting or does this look fixable with simple fillings?
