"Significant : "significant degenerative changes at mid foot"- this means that there are changes consistent with arthritis typically from age or an old injury. Osteopenia- is basically weak or brittle bonse due to insufficient calcification, a decalcified bone can be seen on x-ray. Lastly, vascular calcification is calcium deposits seen in the vessels of the foot, this can also be age related as well. Your doctor should go over these results in detail with you in detail, as well as a treatment plan, which will likely include calcium, vit d, and possibly a steroid injection for your severe foot pain.
