Lower back pain - need advice regarding exercise and physical therapy

Hi,
I am 32 years old male. I have recently developed sciatica like pain and pain in lower back. Hence MRI was advised to me. MRI report suggests L4-5 disc protrusion with mild neural foraminal stenosis and mild spinal stenosis. Multilevel disc bulging and mild foraminal stenoses.

I am looking for experts advice on what kind of exercises I need to do in order to prevent the further complications. Note - I have been working out for many years and would like to continue to do. Shall I continue doing weight lifting or do I need to stop? Also what kind of specific exercises would be useful in my case?

Any advise would be helpful and would really appreciate the response.

Thanks
