Exclamation Please help me surgery or not..?

Please help me to understand left side hurt around 3 years now and I did TMJ last month september 2011 here results:

right tmj: there is mild signal heterogeneity of the posterior band of the disc. No abnormal disc displacement is depicted. Neither the condylar head nor the temporal eminence show evidence of osseous remodeling. Translation on mouth opening, is normal.

left tmj: there is signal heterogeneity of the posterior of the disc laterally. The disc reveals a crumpled morphology with the mouth open. No abnormal disc displacement is depicted, however. Neither the condylar head nor the temporal eminence show evidence of osseous remodeling. Translation on mouth opening is normal.

1. Posterior band perforation of the left disc laterally.
2. Degenerative upper surface erosion of the posterior band of the right disc.
3. No disc displacement or translation abnormality is revealed.

Please tell me I hope nothing here very seriously and I don't need to do surgery...
thank you for your help.
