Has anyone had the surgery
my husband was just diagnosed with CM with about 8-9mm of tonsil decention. We have an apt with a neuro surgeon in the next couple weeks. But I've been reading a lot about the recovery and finding that it's hard to find people with CM let alone that have had the surgery. If anyone here has had the surgery would you be willing to tell me how it went and how recovery was for you? I've been reading 1m up to a year of recovery time with the possibility of it not even doing much to help symptoms. TIA

Hi. I was diagnosed about 2 weeks ago with Chiari 1. I work in helathcare and we are the absolute worst at ignoring symptoms. I have had headaches and dizziness for years and self managed.In june I broke a rib (fell after being dizzy) and was taken out of work to heal. But as i was home, which should be a great vacation (especially during the summer), I started feeling terrible: always...
Has anyone applied for disability and won or are they giving you the run around because they think its just headaches.
