Flattened ventral cord

Hi. Brand new to you. I have had 13 spine surgeries and now maybe facing another. Fused from sacrum to T8. Yeah - not good at tying shoes anymore! Just got my latest MRI results. Most interesting is "metallic artifacts obscure central spinal canal details, but on sagittal images, residual dorsal bone and fusion material at T9-10 flattens the ventral cord with previous decompression at this segment." Any ideas about whether I will need another surgery soon? Seeing spine surgeon next week. Thanks all.
