I live in the Isle of Man and 2 weeks ago I was airlifted to the Walton centre in Liverpool uk, where I was diagnosed with CM, my only symptoms were a stiff neck and slight headache. It turns out that my CM was blocking my CSF fluid draining from my brain, they didn't want to do the decompression op so fitted me with a VP shunt to drain the fluid. Has anyone else had this op for a CM?
Thanks aimee :)
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...
Hi there my name is Elizabeth and I was diagnosed with boderline Chiari last year and I just have a question I hope someone can answer for me. In the last year I have also lost 50 pounds but i feel like I am not any stronger then I was before. In fact I have days my legs and arms don't work as great as other days while I am at boot camp. Is that normal and is there anything I can do to strengthen...
