Googled upon your forum and wondered whether anyone could help me decipher the Mongolian text that is my CT scan summary.
Pain began almost a year ago and is sharp nerve pain through my left glute down into my left ankle.
After receiving these results I have been prescribed some simple hamstring stretches and very, very basic core exercises, and I'm not convinced any of it is really what I need, because I've been in constant pain for a year now and don't think it's a matter of a simple stretch or two to now magically cure me.
"Bilateral L5 pars defects without associated spondylolisthesis. Moderately advanced degenerative disease involves the facet joints bilaterally at the L4/5 and L5/S1 level. Broad based central posterior and left paracentral disc protrustion at the L4/5 level without canal stenosis. A thickened calcified ligamentum flavum hypertrophy on the left side at the L4/5 level is resulting in left lateral recess stenosis potentially impinging upon the traversing left L5 nerve root. "
