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.
