The hearing loss and neuropathy can occur in cervical operation operation if blood supply and nerve supply to that is affected due to complication in surgery. Or else it is not related. Diabetes can lead neuropathy. I suggest you consult your doctor for detailed neurological evaluation.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
