hi I Ve been diagnosed with chiari 1 hindbrain herniation (11 mm) and my N.S is Mrs A. White at QE hosptial (uk) .My surgeon strongly reccomends surgery but I am so scared of how it will leave me after reading stuff on the net !
i suffer every single day with excruciating pressure headaches , dizziness , nausea,blurred vision ,tingling of limbs,severe neck pains the list goes on .i survive on pain meds 4 hourly .
i m also concerned how long I will be off work as I dont paid whilst off sick . I know health is more important but I m a single mom with bills to pay😔. My dr is vague regarding success and recovery and as to whether it will be dangerous if I in time if I don't have decompression surgery ?
Anyone who can give me experience /advice would be greatly appreciated
