Just wondering if anyone can advise what to expect from my first visit to see my neurosurgeon on Tuesday. I was admitted to hospital back in December after a CT scan and MRI showed I had a Chairi Type 1 5mm. During that time I was not really seen only brief 5 - 10 min chats with the doctor. I was told I had fluid showing and talk of a shunt was mentioned. I was then discharged and told I would be followed up in 3 months (had my CT scan two weeks ago). Since leaving hospital have not been right (I know some of its worry) but can't lift anything without getting pain in back of head and neck. Also been getting bad headaches in the front and side of my head. I am also suffering really bad weight and muscle loss. I also suffer bad floaters and blued vision and eyes seen worse ( I wear glasses but noticing a change)
Can anyone please tell me what to expect from my first appointment? I really need some reassurance from the surgeon as the last few months have been hell where I am worrying.
