Do you think this will require surgery?

Hi. I am new here. Thanks for having me:

Today I got part of my MRI report and it says: Multi-generative Disk Disease, Moderate to Severe Canal Narrowing, Nerve Impingement. I don't have the actually report only what the nurse told me to write down. The doctor wants me to see a spinal surgeon. 

Have you had any of these and had to get surgery? I don't know the degree of damage and have to see the surgeon.

What do you think?

    You have to be very careful when reading reports, it all comes down to the severity of the condition, there are also many conserative treatments that your doctor may recommend, but only your doctor will be able to figure it all out for you.
