I'm sorry to learn this.  But your doctors are the best people to advise, not an online forum.

 

As a doctor I cannot comment as you give no details, but in answer to your straight question:

would cervical myelopathy and spinal stenosis be of a cause of imbalance and gait distubance?

it could be....but it depends on where it was (which vertebrae).  I would be inclined to wait.

 

Good luck
