I am 26 year old very active male with an impending fusion. All conventional treatments have failed here is my MRI report.
L2-l3 mild near circumferential bulge most prominent anteriorly. No central spinal canal stenosis. Questionable contact of the transiting left l3 nerve root in the lateral recess.
L3-l4 mild circumferential bulge which flattens the vertebral thecal sac without significant central spinal canal stenosis. Mild contact of the transitioning l4 nerve roots in the lateral recess. No significant neuroforaminal narrowing.
L4-l5 circumferential disc bulge eccentric to the left which flattens the ventral thecal sac without significant central spinal canal stenosis mild contact of the left greater right transitioning l5 nerve roots in the lateral recesses. Minimal neural foraminal narrowing bilaterally.
L5-s1 superimposed posterior broad-based disc protrusion and more focal right paracentral disc protrusion with near complete obliteration of the right lateral recess resulting in contact and displacement of the transitioning right s1 nerve root as well as mild central spinal canal stenosis. Mild contact of the transitioning left s1 nerve root in the lateral recess. Questionable minimal extraforaminal contact of the exiting right l5 nerve root. Mild to moderate bilateral neuroforaminal narrowing.
Impression: multilevel spondylosis most pronounced at l5-s1 as above recommend neurosurgical consultation.
I am active duty and my job cannot have any restrictions in regards to workload carrying heavy packs, gear, weapons, hiking long distance, etc. Also, an avid hockey player, crossfit, and general lifting.
