Im 20 years old i was just diagnosed with a pars defect of the s1 and l5 i had surgery to get it fixed but now the pain is way worse why is that?

Sometimes the

surgery does not heal in terms of the defect healing if a direct repair or if it did heal, possibly you needed a fusion of that level. Even with a successful surgery, there can be about a 10% failure rate in a nonsmoker and a significantly higher failure rate in a smoker. You need to see your surgeon but it takes months for a surgery like this to heal. Surgeon case assess your fusion status.

Grade 2 anterolisthesis L5 on S1 with severe loss of disk height. Moderate loss of disk height at L3-4 and L4-5. Pars defect at L5. Right leg goes numb after standing still for 5 min or more. Surgery?

It certainly time to consider advanced treatments, diagnosis, and possibly surgery. You have a bad spine with multiple pathologies. It's important to figure out if you have active ongoing nerve damage. An EMG will give you the information that you need. If you don't have active nerve damage try everything else (injections, decompression, chiro, PT) before surgery as many can avoid surgery.

Herniated discs L4/L5, L5/S1, bilateral sacroillitis x5 years, chronic back pain and worsening leg weakness. Sick of PT, now what?

Sick of PT

Back_pain
Unfortunately, with your issues exercise is an important factor. Swimming is best as it can be low impact while keeping the joints moving. SI joints can be made numb with raiofrequency performed by a qualified pain doc and can last upto a year or more. Herniated discs too can be treated with minimally invasive techniques, esp if they are contained (the outer rim is intact).

The terms in this instance both signify osteoarthritis. It will not heal although the back pain can resolve over time or with appropriate treatment.

what is the question

Rheumatology
You have not asked a question. What you have is osteoarthritis at L5-S1 of a moderate degree. If back pain is a significant issue you have several options that can help. See an orthopedist or rheumatologist.

Dr. Jimmy D. Bowen answered:

I have bilateral degenerative changes at L5-S1 level w/a grade 1-2 spondylolisthesis found 9/2012 has become worse will I end up needing surgery?

Spine Surgery

Spondylolisthesis
Spine Surgery is reserved for individuals that have unrelenting pain that has failed conservative care or who have a progressive neurologic condition due to the spinal changes. Many individuals with your radiographic finding are pain free. If worsening would followup with your doctor or see a surgical or nonsurgical spine specialist.
