Can anyone tell me if this requires surgery??
"Central disc protrusion at L5-S1 causing anrrowing of the lateral recesses bilaterally without frank stenosis. Bilateral foraminal narrowing is noted as well at this level."
My husband is in terrible pain and can find no relief. We have tried PT and injections. Is there a way to prove or disprove that the pain he has is from this disc?
We are told that he is not a canidate for a fusion becuase his tests (MRI) don't show that the pain is from the disc or from a unstable spine. But I keep reading that the central disc protrusion should be fixed via surgery. Wht should we do??
