Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Your Mri report is suggestive of a compressive neuropathy and may need surgical decompression. Visit a spine surgeon for further management.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
