please can anyone interpret MRI results!!!

Findings: modic type 2 changes in l5-s1. Otherwise no abnormal marrow signal. Disc dessication at l2-l3 andl5-s1. Conus appropriately sighted at L1. Some loss of fat in the foramen of L5 s1 on the right side. No obvious comprise of the l5 root. On the left side nerve root is displaced posteriorly. At l5 -s1 generalised disc bulge. This disc bulge in combination with osteophytes, but predominately osteophyte in a far lateral left lateral position results in loss of fat! Then the conclusion says degenerative disc disease with potential for compromise of the left L5 nerve root in a far lateral position, predominately secondary to osteophyte? ? I have looked up in bits and pieces and still none the wiser I am on lyrica tramadol naproxen robaxin diezepan amongst others and totally agony and now I have just found out that I am pregnant! ! I have no idea how to cope me n my partner have 6 kids between us and our youngest is only 10 months but any help would be very grateful thanks x

  • right away about the combination of medications you are taking.........there are certain types of medications that can be dangerous for a developing fetus, and it would be in your and the baby's best interest to at least call your gyn to discuss those medications, dosages and any need to stop them today.
