Hi all. I'm a long time chiari malformation patient. I had decompression surgery with a laminectomy a little over 15 years ago. I wasn't expected to walk again due to other spinal problems, but I walked out of the hospital. My question is: is there anyone out there who has had the surgery years ago whose having symptoms again. My balance, co-ordination, and memory is getting bad again. I'm not having severe headaches but I've got really horrible neck pain. I had an MRI done 2 years ago, but it didn't show anything new. The neurosurgeon that did my surgery is no longer at the practice, he's now a pediatric brain tumor specialist. I haven't found a neurologist who will consider chiari as a reason for my issues. Any advice would be helpful.
