Chronic Cervical Myelopathy

Hi I have had cervical myelopathy since 2007 when I had my first surgery . I had 3 surgery's all together C3 to C7 and I have other problems at other levels of my spine. In July of this year my fingers on my hands started to bend up all the time until I lost the use of middle, ring and little finger on each hand now they have 0 power. Then my arm and hands and legs became weaker . The new MIR scan showed that the degeneration to my spinal cord at the neck has became worse so the diagnosed me with chronic cervical myelopathy , but this is not the cause of the problem to my fingers and there is no compression, so I have had some neurophysiology tests done. I get the results tommrow , has any else got chronic cervical myelopathy and been through this sort of problem. I always new about my weakness to my legs and arms and dropping things all the time but this new onset is worrying me.
