I had an MRI scan on my back recently as I have been suffering with severe back pains for a number of years, my rheamy told me that I have dysplastic L5 and has refered me to a spinal surgon. Does this mean that I have spondylolitheisis? How serious is this? What is the prognosis with this defect? Any information would be fantastic. Thankyou.
