medullary veins

My husband just had surgery for Chiari malformantion but is still not feeling right.  He feels like he has medicine.  I  guess way to describe it is  like flu in the head.  Reading back on his CT Scans states that he has mininmal prominent perivascular spaces surounding some of the medullary veins.  Is this anything that he should be concerned about that might be the other cause for his symptoms besides the Chiaris or could this be something completely different.  Please help!!!!

How long ago was his surgery?
It sounds recent - and there may be some swelling - talk to the doctors and find out if his symptoms are typical and how long they are expected to last.

As for the CT, the slightly larger perivascular spaces surrounding some of the medullary veins - I looked it up and it just means there is a lot of blood flow so the spaces enlarged a little. You have to ask the doctor if this is significant. Was this put in the body of the report or the summary?

Let us know the follow up.
