Mri results

Hi all - I am almost 1 year post cervical disc replacement and fusion (c4-7). I was prescribed physical therapy 4 months post op and after 6 weeks of excrusiating lower back pain (pt thought I had Joint issue) It was discovered I had 2 Lumbar herniated discs and ridiculopathy. Have been getting steriodal injections without much comfort. Getting back to cervical spine - I began experiencing pain in my neck radiating to arms and down spine and pain management DR ordered MRI. Results say: Fusion appears satisfactory with mildly reversed lordosis; T2-3 mild central disc bulge; C3-4 moderate disc bulge w/osteophytes bilaterally;4-5 mild ridging; 6-7 modrae broad range bulge and focal protrusion t left lateral recess, mild cord flattening. ALl have moderate foraminal stenosis as well as moderate degeneative joint/disc disease. The pain Dr has scheduled a steriodal injection in 2 weeks and will discuss results at that time. I am sick of being in pain. I also will not take any narcotic pain medications - Currently on neurontin but not much help. ANY FEEDBACK, INSIGHT IS WELCOME. Thanks much
