The first thing to do is to get a further evaluation with a 3T MRI. The probability is you have been scanned with a 1.5 T machine. The 1.5 T machines are very good, but the 3T is better. Especially if you are considering surgery. This will provide your physicians with a better idea of the extent of the damage, and get a better idea as to which direction the treatment should go in.

There are many options, from physical therapy to surgical intervention.

I would remain optimistic. If the spine is stabilized and pressure relieved on the nerves you have a good chance for full recovery.
