Dr. Robert Masson answered:

What is mild disc desiccation?

Disc dehydrated

Blood
It is mild dehydration of the disc, suggesting damage to the blood supply of the disc and foretelling a decay cycle and aging of the disc. In and of itself, not important to worry about unless associated with severe symptoms, then needs proper consideration and evaluation.

What does diffuse disc desiccation mean?

Might be age

Neck
The term is saying that multiple discs (presumably in your back/neck) are dried out and decreased in size. This happens to everyone as you age and the question is whether it is more than normal.

Dr. Anthony Filly answered:

What does desiccation of the disc without loss of disc height mean?

Normal aging

Height
Dedication means drying out. There is a central pulp in the disc which tends to dry up as we age. It is really the way most discs look on MRI as people get older. Fortunately it has not started to lose height yet but it probably will over time. We call this degenerative disc disease

How would I correct my back the L5-S1 has disc desiccation and 2 MM of retrolisthesis of L5 onto S1?

Don't look at pic

Back
The picture of your back usually does not play a role in your treatment unless you have failed nonop care and have symptoms that warrant surgery and findings on studies consistent with your complaints. All of us develop changes at L5-S1 over time and the dessication with retrolithesis is a normal finding for most as we age not necessarily requiring a "fix."

Dr. William Byars answered:

Can multilevel, severe thoracic disc desiccation result in upper left back pain after eating? Thanks.

Look at GI tract

Pain
If this connection between eating and pain continues to hold true, look for a source within the gastrointestinal tract. Esophagitis and gallbladder disease are two possibilities.

I have severe disc desiccation on my L5-S1 according to my MRI , is this a good reason for surgery? I'm 30 looking for long term results

Not always

Stenosis
You could try conservative management first like physical therapy, exercises, or manipulation therapy. These modalities could be tried alone or in combinations
