Hello There. I can understand your concern and i hope she is not in too much pain. the report is suggestive of canal stenosis which may be putting pressure on the neural elements. you need to consult a neurosurgeon or a orthopaedic spine surgeon. depending on the amount of stenosis and the severity of symptoms, the surgery may be necessary. it will be explained to you by the surgeon itself. Best regards, Dr. Anil kumar jain.

HNP= Herniated nucleus pulposus is a condition in which part or all of the soft, gelatinous central portion of an intervertebral disk is forced through a weakened part of the disk, resulting in back pain and nerve root irritation. It is not so uncommon. you can feel symptoms related to it in upper limb or lower limb.. other symptoms may also occur but all these will be transient.. If you feel numbness in hand then donot panic, its due to compression.. for all this you can show it to a good neurologist ...If she is having pain then give pain killer like Tab ULTRACET 1 tab as and when required. Use cervical collar..
