Anesthesiologist 's  Response
By seeing your MRI report it confirms that you have intervertibral disc prolapse at L3/L4, L4/L5 which is causing compression to nerve roots which are emerging from vertibral foremen, you need to under go discectomy surgery earliest possible, before surgery limit your activity, take bed rest, continue with vitamin supplimentation and analgesics. Consult neurosugeon or orthopedician at earliest.
take care
