I'm 17 years old and was diagnosed with Chiari 1 two and a half years ago. My neurologist told me it was benine and had nothing to do with my symptoms and sent me away. Recently met a new neurologist who referred me to a neurosurgeon who today said the pressure on my spine needs to be fixed asap, meaning surgery. I have every symptom there is so suffer constantly. Can anyone tell me anything about their experience with it? Being so young it's a big step to get brain surgery but I feel its the best decision to make, I just want to be fully informed before telling the doctor I'm 100% about the surgery. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
