After 30 years of being fobbed off with migraines and tension headaches I have now been told I have a chiari malformation and syrinx. My consultant also said that there is no flow around the back of my head which is causing the shoulder pain and headaches. He said he can justify me having the surgery but I said I would rather have a checkup in 6 months and then decide. I was ok yesterday when I had the appointment and was told all of this but today I feel really down especially as it looks like surgery is not always 100% successful. Can you let me know your surgery stories, good or bad, so I can make an informed decision? Thanks
