MRI findings by themselves do not mean much. Your symptoms need to be correlated to the MRI (and X-ray findings) to understand your disorder.

You have had a fusion at L4-5 in the past. The MRI report does not comment on fusion status (solid vs. pseudoarthrosis). You have degenerative changes at L5-S1 (“Disc space narrowing endplate degenerative change at L5-S1”) which could be isolated disc resorption (IDR-see website).
