Hi i have had an mri of my spine and brain which showed a 16.7 chiari malformation and slight syrinx.
I was reffered to Dr Hardwidge nuerosurgeon at hurstwood park who amazingly told me the only possible benefit to surgery would be the strain / pressure headache maybe be improved but may not. He told me that thier was a 1% chance of my difficulty in swallowing was related and was very ANTI surgery. He went on to explain that chiari had NO connection whatso ever to depression, co-ordination / motor skills, Diziness & balance, loss of memory, General though / cognitive issues, slurred speach, over active leg reflexes with spastic tone, neck pain, ringing in my ears, etc
I have loads more symptoms but this condradicts everything else i have researched.
What can i do now ?
This has ruined my life and now i feel misled and let down.
Please give me your opinion / advice.
Thank you in advance.
