    Your results are not dire yet, but its a problem in the making.  It looks like you are just now at the point of having the problem assessed.  The worst finding is the disc desiccation which indicates some type of spinal degeneration problem.

    The next step is discussing the treatment options. 

    Spinal degeneration can usually be slowed or halted with a combination of treatments. You are young enough that with proper treatment and physical therapy, much of the disc damage may be able to heal.  You may need to have certain vertebrae fused to arrest progression.  Getting to the point where you can exercise and build muscle to relieve some stress on the spine would probably be a good treatment objective.
