In brief: Have it operated on

If you already have the diagnosis of myelopathy, it may be dormant for a long time.
However, it never gets better, unfortunately. Are you certain that the myelopathy is in the thoracic spine. The MRI should also check the cervical and lumbar spine, because the thoracic spine, without any trauma, is rare
