Epidural fat by itself would not cause any problem to the spinal cord.Fat by nature is soft and does not lead to any pressure on the cord.

I have only said that fat would not cause compression.There may be other structures responsible.
Thanks for uploading the report.Report mentions that prominent fat is present in non operated areas with anterior displacement of thecal sac which is similar to preoperative status.In effect it means that there is no significant compression in these areas.If these areas of thecal sac had been problematic your surgeon would have dealt with these areas at the time of surgery.
In fact report suggests that some compression is present in the operated area though less than before.Fat here has been replaced by granulation tissue and that may be responsible for the residual compression at operated area.
