Welcome to icliniq.com.
I have gone through the attachment (attachment removed to protect patient identity). Yes, you have a large paracentral disc prolapse on the left side. I cannot say about the level involved as you have not sent a sagittal section. If you have the symptoms matching with the level of the disc, then you have to wait for at least six weeks for the disc to have a shrinkage. If there is no improvement or if you are having motor weakness or bowel or bladder disturbance, then these are the indicators for the surgery rather than having a conservative treatment. A decision to have surgery should be taken by yourself along with the advice of the clinical examiner.
