Yes

Height
This is also called degenerative spondylo and is dueit to degenaration of the facet joints.it also produces some degree of spinal stenosisand some impigment of the nerve roots and hence some radiculopathy that can give you the symptoms you are expiriencing now.

Infertility
The medications you are describing are several antibiotics, vitamins and enzymes. None of these are infertility medications. If you are not sure why he/she prescribed them, you should ask your doctor what they are for.

Can you tell me what grade 1 anterolisthesis of l5 on s1 indicates?

Spondylolisthesis

Spondylolisthesis
This refers to a less than 25% slippage of the L5 vertebra in relation to S1. Increasing grades denote worse slippage.

Dr. Amy Levine answered:

Mild scoliosis; grade 1 spondylolisthesis L5-S1; L4-5 prom L paracentral disc extrusion; mild ligamentous & facet hypertrophy. treatments?

Depends

Spondylolisthesis
Most disks get better within 6 months with PT and conservative treatment, assuming that the disk is even related to the pain. Keep an eye on spondy to make sure it's stable. If you develop instability surgery may be in order.

I have a grade 1 spondylolisthesis L4/L5/s1 with stenosis. My pain would be described as burning and a feeling of heaviness in my lower back . ?

Common

Stricture
Spondylolisthesis commonly causes back pain. Lumbar stenosis commonly causes leg pain, numbness especially with extended activity. Weight control and core muscle exercises are a first step. If these don't help, consultation with a neurosurgeon or orthopedic spine surgeon would be a reasonable next step.

There's grade 2 anterolisthesis of L5 on S1 with severe loss of disk height. Moderate loss of disk height at L3-4 and L4-5. Pars defects L5. Needsurg?

Not necessarily

Height
Those findings are relatively common, especially in persons who have practiced sports in their younger age. Surgery is only recommended on the basis of disabling symptoms, and after conservative treatment and alternative measures such as epidural injections have failed.

I had an xray showed I have spondilitis grade 1 in L4 and L5. How do you treat this kind of lower back pain which sometimes the pain goes to both hip ?

Physical therapy

Back_pain
Grade 1 is the lowest form, however P.T. Is needed to keep the vertebrae from slipping further. Additionally P.T. Can help reduce the pain. Avoiding movements thathyperextend your back or an epidural steroid injection can be helpful.

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?

Spinal pain

Height
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.

What does grade 1 spondylolisthesis at the L4-5 level mean?

Up to 25%

Spondylolisthesis
Grade 1 means that the forward slippage of L4 is up to one quarter (25%) of the top of the L5 vertebra. So if the top of L5 front to back is 50 mm, the forward slip of L4 is more than zero and less than 12.5 mm.
