I am scheduled to have the surgery on the 14th, In last few months symptoms have been getting worse.

Tinging feelings/numbesss all over the body,stomach,lower back, trunk,legs, buttocks. pain in thigh and chest.

I am worried even the surgery would not fix it. I want to hear some positive stories people recovering from myelopathy or myelomalacia.
MRI shows C4-C7 severe steonosis. Pain in hand.

    I'm really sorry you are having to go through this.
    You would probably start getting more responses to your inquiries by keeping everything under one post.
    Do you have cervical myelopathy? In what area do you have spinal stenosis?
    While we are waiting for others to respond, you might find it useful to go to the search engine at the top right of this page. There you find articles and videos as well as discussions on this topic.

    I'm sorry, I found a previous discussion you had mentioning your surgery. You are having a 3 level cervical.

    Myopathy surgury main purpose is not to heal it's to prevent further loss of function or damage.  The healing is not guaranteed and often is just a nice addition to stopping the progression, but no guarantees .  Now the other stuff I am not sure, but it's best to talk to dr about what to expect so you don't deal with unrealistic expectations 
    Do your due dilegence, trust you know your body and question everything if it does not fit. Advocate for yourself and you will be suprised what will be revealed trusting your body and instinct.
