you shuld always write your physical complaints along with reports ..... ssee thecal sac carries spinal cord in if there is indentation it means thre is some pressure over spinal cord depending on the degree ur case MINIMAL... if u r having heaviness of legs and foot its worrying then ..... else wear a lumbar belt and some analgesic s ...and follow ur neurologists advice..
