help reading MRI results

I just got back my MRI report from my post op MRI. my dr said it didnt show any reherniation or scar tissue that should be causing my sciatica and time would make it go away.
i am no dr and i dont claim to know everything this MRI report says but i swear it says i have a bulged disc or disc material.....here is what it says... can someone interpret? I swear it says i have some bulging disc material to the right (which is where my sciatica is-right leg. before surgery it was in the left leg). HELP!

"At the L5S1 level, there is evidence of interval resection of the previously noted protruded disc material with only minimal bulging of the disc material noted to the right of midline on the current examiniation. No other evidence of residual or recurrent disc reherniation is evident. Additionally, on the post enhance images, there is evidence a mild degree of enhancement within the ventral subarachnoid space and extending laterally on the left into the posterior soft tissue compatible epidural fibrosis and scarring within the soft tissue."
