I had a MRI scan last year in October. I am sorta having trouble understanding what it all means:

No significant bone marrow abnormalities were noted. the conus appears normal terminating at he T12-L1 level. There is low signal intensity in the dural sac extending from approximately T12-L1 through L2-L3 on the axial transverse images, likely artifactual. Epidural lipmatosis was noted at L5-S1 with moderate narrowing of the dural sac.

L1-2: Normal
L2-3: Normal
L3-4: there is mild generalized bulge
L4-5: there is moderate generalized disk bulge with mild bilateral foraminal stenosis
L5-S1: there is mild generalized bulge
1. Multilevel generalized disk buldges with mild formainal stenosis bilaterally at L4-5
2. Epidural lipomatosis at L5-S1

My doctor had me do decomphression therapy for a while. Now he is wanting me to lose weight so I can get pressure off my back.
