I just feel that 61cm is way to big for you,even though the handlebars are higher.
And you like how the 58cm feels.I'm kind of surprise they are suggesting the 61.
Also check out other LBS in your area.good luck
The stack is only 3/4" taller, but the TT is only 1/2" longer. What about the 1/2" makes the 61 objectionably larger?

I don't see why someone that tall with a back issue wouldn't want the tallest bike he can easily fit, and that 1/2" of additional reach doesn't seem like much of a hurdle.
