Hi, Dixie, and welcome.
I can't help you much with the MRI either. We're not doctors here, but can offer support, as Freya said. You may trying going to some credible websites such as that affiliated with Cleveland Clinic, or search the Healing Well resource directory. The best thing, though, would be to sit down with your doctor and have him/her explain what the MRI shows in language you can understand. Spines are so compilcated. And remember there can be things that show up on an MRI but if they're not causing symptoms they're not problematic.
Talk with your doctor. Make a list of your questions when you go on. I know my surgeon went over the MRI with me right in his office and showed me what he was going to do.
