I'm afraid cucumbers are annual plants and they will die after a few months in the ground, especially after they've developed some fruits. It's just the natural growth habit of cucumbers. I'd pull the plant and start all over with new seeds. You'll be able to harvest cucumbers in about 6 weeks. Enjoy!
