You had a central cord injury with your fall. See the sections under cervical; central stenosis and under spine trauma; central cord injury to understand your injuries and current situation.

I do not think that surgery is an option, it is a necessity. I cannot open images as I do not have a HIPPA compliant server yet. The level or levels that are “tight” need to be addressed. That may be one or three.
