My MRI scan states I have L4/5 disc degeneration with posterior annular tear and broad-based left subarticular/foraminal/extra foraminal disc bulge with L5 nerve root compression against facet joint. There could be an element of focal extrusion.
Does this mean I have a herniated disc.
If so does that mean that the disc nucleus is protuding into epidural space?
How long to heal? If at all
