Dear new Chiarians
I had my decompression on 8th of May, they sent me home next day(walked to home), I have been jolly, happy, I don't feel like I had an operation,
They only done phase 1(put a hole back of my skull) hopefully this will work and my 40cm syrinx will shrink slowly(already feel better).
My humble Tips for you
Go for operation EARLIER BETTER.
You get out from operation SAME condition you get in. So before the operation eat well, sleep well, be ACTIVE. Especially cardiovascular activities are vital for us (almost everyone can do stationary bike).
There are exercises for everything SEARCH for it (after the operation I couldn't swallow: found a way. Easy!)
Don't forget your mind: MEMORY games, courses(recently I have done more than 10 free online courses)
You may have COMORBIDITY (chiari+other condition) SEEK for it don't blame just chiari.
Be POSITIVE. If you compare chiari pains with cancer and ulcer pain it's NOTHING.
Bye for now
