Brief Answer:
Is it possible to upload the MRI report?

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for getting back.

I can understand your discomfort on account of your symptoms and multiple doctor visits.

Is it possible to upload your MRI report here, so that I can give you a better answer regarding what can be done to make you better.

Surgery is only required in a few cases, and most cases of degenerative discs can be managed with medications and physiotherapy.

I hope it helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
