L5/S1 protrusion
Oct 26, 2009
Hi ,my name is charmain . im new to this so please bare with me.
I have bad pain in my butt/back and hip also pins and needles in my foot/calf and leg. Ive had a mri and was told i have a L5/S1 moderate protrusion and a L4/5 annular fissure the L5/S1 is displacing and compressing the nerve root in the lateral recess. Does this mean surgery? Im still waiting patiently to see the consultant. Can any one shed some light on the matter.
thanks x:(
