My MRI report summary shows Early lumbar spondylosis with degenerative disc

Patient

Q: My MRI report summary shows

Early lumbar spondylosis with degenerative disc disease L5s1

Posterior disc protrusion at L5/S1 with effacement of anterior epidural fat

Early cervical spondylosis with degenerative disc disease

Normal B/L SI & hip joints

I have pain in my hips & back some times also in legs

Is it a major problem

Doctor

A:   Hi.
Thanks for your query.

Read and understood your problems.
MRI Shows:
Early lumbar spondylosis
Degenerative disc disease L5- S1 with posterior disc protrusion at L5-S1 and effacement of anterior epidural fat.
Early cervical spondylosis with degenerative disc disease.
Normal B/L SI means Sacro-iliac joint and normal hip joints > this may not be the reason for the pains you have in your hips & back.The pains may be due to local muscle spasms.
Pain in the legs can be due to nerve compression in the spine.
This is not a very major problem.

I hope this answers your query.
