Disc herniation L4-5

New to forum, hello! Injured my low back at the end of Jan pulling a heavy deadlift, went to doctors, they just sent me home after xray. Pain cont. or got worse over 4 months so just had mri done and this is the impression: Disc herniation on the left at L4-5 with mass effect upon the traversing left L5 nerve root. Disc herniation at L5-S1 is also noted without definite significant mass effect. The right foramen at L5-S1 is also narrowed with contact of the right L5 nerve root. Have a ton of questions if anyone can help, thank you so much!
