Lower back MRI

I had an MRI done after 2months of pain in my lower back. I am a 43 year old female. The MRI results say
l5/ s1  right paracentral disc protrusion exerting mass effect on the traversing right s1nerve root.  
L3 /l4 small right sub articulate / foraminal annular tear / disc protrusion.
L4/ l5 broad based posterior disk buldging with small superimposed central disc protrusion  mild to moderate central canal stenosis. Minimal bilateral neural foraminal narrowing.
A few tiny scattered schmorl's are noted.

I  see the spine center Wednesday . I have already done physical therapy I wonder what they will suggest. I can't take the pain or not being able to do much.

You should see both a neurosurgeon and a orthopedic surgeon, seperately, to get an independent opinion.
