Prominent osteo-arthritic changes with rigtht sided subarticular cyst as well as cycts in relation to the posterior lip of the articular surface of the right acetabulum with mild joint space narrowing and valgus of both femur necks. Early degeneration of the right SI joint. No signs of spondylolysis or spondylolisthesis, The AP and lateral alignment appeared normal. Disc space narrowing L5/S1 as well as L1/L2 with calcification of the nucleus pulposus most probably due to previous injury. PLEASE HELP ME WITH ANSWERS. REGARDS DEZI

Hallo Dezi
You have bony growths and a cyst(fluid filled area in the bone) in the hollow of the hip joint (probably caused by arthritis), causing a narrowing of the space between the hip hollow and the "ball" of the leg bone, and both hips turns inwards slightly. The right sided joint between the hip and the spine at the back also shows signs of arthritis but the vertebrae are normally aligned. The discs between the lower back vertebrae are worn out causing narrowing ( this could put pressure on nerve roots causing pain down your legs) and the discs seems to be calified due to previous injury.
