Hi All,

Just got the MRI Results:

Degenerative changes at L5/S1 where there is advanced inferior left lateral recess stenosis predominantly due to a left lateral disk herniation most likely impinging the left S1 nerve root.

I'm going to do a consult with the surgeon. Any recommendations on what to do for recovery? Should I stop training all together or stick to some light upper body?

Currently I'm doing PT which involves stretching, stim, and the cold tub.

Before I did anything I would consult with your surgeon or with a higher level sports physio
