X-rays taken for back, hip pain. Large amount of fecal residue in colon. Have femoral hernia. Treatment?

Hello I had lower back x-rays for back pain & hip pain taken. The report showed large amount of fecal residue in the colon . Is this causing some of my back pain? I was told that I have a femoral hernia . I fell crossing a stream and landed on my stomach. Since Dec. 17th 2012 I have had alot of lower back pain and hip pain. I had an MRI of the lower spine last night. I have grade l anterolisthesis at L4-L5. Facet arthropathy from L4 throught S1. Marked disc space narrowing at L5 -S1. The pain is deep,feels musclecular from lower back to right hip running down into my knees. I seem to be getting worse not better. Physical therapy agrevated my hip and lower back. Prednisone did not help and celebrex 200 mg is not helping me. What should I do next? Thank you. Diane

I have studied your case.

Pain due spinal canal stenosis in your case will not resolve with out surgery
you may need spinal decompression surgery.

Till time, avoid lifting weights, Sit with support to back. You can consult physiotherapist for help.
Physiotherapy like ultrasound and interferential therapy will give quick relief.
