Please help with MRI results.

I have had a 3 level spinal fusion surgery in December 09. I am now having numbness in my right hand and fingers. It is also going up into my arm. I am also having neck pain. I have my MRI report but my doctor is out of town. This is what the report says.
Postoperative changes with moderate to sever central canal narrowing at C5-6 and C6-7. There's also moderate neuroforaminal narrowing at C6-7 bilaterally. C3-4 Mild disc ridging with mild ventral narrowing of the thecal sac, but no significant stenosis. C4- 5 Broad based disc osteophyte complex causing ventral narrowing of the thecal sac with minimal contouring of the fluid.
Thanks for your help.

I presume chronic compression of the cervical vertebrae from C3 to C7, and might need often Cervical traction, and again depends on the age of the patient. A neck collar would be a good idea. I would advise some panchakarma therapies which are of surely better help!
