Hi everyone - it had been sometimes since last I was on active communication - I have not received any information from this side until today.

I would like to share my experiences to all of Chiari Patients who are worried about their condition; whether or not there is life after decompression.

Its been over 2 years since my post operation - I thought I will never achieve this quality of life any more after this operation - it took time to heal- but hey..here I am..enjoying my life to the fullest- hence worth..DONT WORRY ..get your decompression as soon as possible - choose the right more experience Neurosurgeon who has had a success rate- listen to what they advice you to do after operation - dont do too much - listen to your body - regular stretching exercise (no running - jogging-too much cardio exercises) - make sure you drink plenty of waters and last but not least regular deep tissue massage is good for your general wellbeing.

    Your advice doesn’t suit everyone. You always portray someone who knows more abou this condition than anyone else. It’s dangerous so please stop.

    I’m so happy u had a good experience.  I did not. I’m in horrible pain.  Everyone is different and have different problems.  If your csf flow is blocked, u have no choice but surgery.  Good luck to everyone and hope u have a good experience.
