what is the best treatment for Disc dehydration and Diffuse disc?

MRI Report
Lumber Spine
> Disc dehydration is seen at the level L4-L5 and L5-S1
> Diffuse disc bugle at L5-S1 level with left far lateral extra.
> Foraminal component causing  radicular compression.

End report.

Do you think operation is the best option or not. If not then what is the best option to cure this pain.
I would appreciate if you reply me back as soon as possible.

Treatment of disc dehydration may not include surgery. Symptoms can be managed with Exercise and Physical Therapy, Pain Medications, Taking steroid injections. However, if the disc protrusion or disc bulge does not improve with physiotherapy, surgery may be required. Please discuss the treatment options with a neurologist. Hope this helps you. Take care and regards!

Dear bruno,
Your story saddens me. My husband was in the same position as you r today but years ago and worse off. We were referred to an outstanding n talented doctor out in Philadelphia P.a. after years of dealing with the pain came depression. He too suffered badly and was at the end of his rope.but this doctor saved him. Surgery was the only option. Now today I'm not gonna lie he still has pain but it's controlled with a pain management doctor here in Pennsylvania.  Don't give up please look these doctors up you just might find the answers your looking  for. Stay strong and just think where there's a will there's a way. DR.ADMUNDSON AND DR.MAZZA I feel your pain in more ways then 1.
