Please help me with MRI results!!

I finally had an MRI on my back. Here are the results - can someone help me understand what all this means? Because of travel I probably won't be seeing my Doctor till a week from today. Also - what are the treatment methods?

Note: I've been having lower left back pain, hip pain, and lower left abdominal pain.

1) Underlying slender AP diameter of central canal

2) At L4-L5, moderate central stenosis from facet hypertrophy and moderate diffuse disc bulge.

3) At L3-L4, mild-to-moderate central stenosis from mild diffuse disc bulge and mild facet degeneration.

Thank you much in advance!
