Back Pain

I am suffering alot of pain at both hips and I was gone for MRI Lumbar Spine. The findings are as follows:

IMPRESSION: MR IMAGE MOROPHOLOGY IS IN FAVOUR OF

- DISC BULGES AT L4 - L5 -S1 LEVELS CAUSING INDENTATION OVER THECAL SAC, MORE SO ON LEFT SIDE AT L4 -L5 LEVEL AND ON RIGHT SIDE AT L5 - S1 LEVEL CAUSING MILD NEURAL COMPROMISE.

-  FAIRLY LARGE HYPERINTENSE AREA IN ILIAC MARGIN OF LEFT SACROILIAC JOINT INFERIORLY WITH NO SOFT TISSUE COMPONENT- S/O MARROW OEDEMA - POSSIBLE INFLAMMATORY / CAUSE.

with the above report please suggest me fast relief and permanent cure with surgery.

This is rare when a patient ask about a cure, which is often surgery.
Less invasive surgeries for lumbar spine include the insertion of Coflex).
Coflex will be helpful to treat your case of L4-L5 disc bulge but not the L5-S1.
L5-S1 should also be treated with surgery, but simple laminectomy at the time of insertion of the Coflex may be sufficient.
An additional component of hip inflammation should be ended with an orthopedic surgeon.

Dear Irena
First of all I should see in a way your brain MRI, because I can not evaluate a written report, if you decided to sent me the result, I will do my best to take your personal case under concideration. Till now what you are describing me is only a reflection of some electrolite disturbances (or an occupational intoxication by metals or other substances).. sure it should be investigated

you should go to the center where you did your MRI and you ask about a cd copy, then you dsonal download some of your results on your personal profil, and then you notify me.
or you send me the whole cd by DHL or Aramex or Fedex to: Saint George hospital Beirut Lebanon, /dr nassim Abi Chahine
