Hey All!... hope your day is going well... 2 questions... i was looking over my MRI & I am not sure of a couple of things...

1) I show moderate to severe facet spondylosis at L5-S1 any ideas what this means in lay terms?

2) I was reading that a protruding disc means that the annular ring is still intact... if so, in a disectomy, wouldn't they be cutting that away and creating a weakness that could allow the pulpus to leak out?

Any thoughts would be great & if i seem too obsessive this always happens when I have another "bad back" episode (which happened this last week)!
