I have a Chiari malformation, diagnosed in 2013. I initially had decompression surgery in 2013 which helped with symptoms initially for 6 months, then all symptoms returned with vengeance. I become very ill with lots of sickness, nausea, terrible headaches etc. I ended up having a shunt inserted to regulate the fluid around my brain, basically treatment for hydrocephalus. This was in 2014, and unfortunately I still get headaches, balance problems, tiredness, and a very poor memory! Most of these problems may have been caused by a haemorrhage I suffered during the second operation. I would like to have some sort of discussion with my surgeons to find out what exactly happened and what I can expect in the future.
