The surgery would mostly help in preventing the progression of the condition and reducing symptoms like pain.

The recovery of the neurological defecits already done so far may take time (situation specific) or may not be completely possible with residual defects remaining.

Continue to work with your doctor who can clear all your doubts.

I hope this helps.
