Anyone need/have Cranio Cervical Fusion WITHOUT Decompression?
Hello Everyone!
I am hesitantly anticipating a Cranio Cervical Fusion with Dr. B at TCI. I have read just about everything I can find on the internet- blogs, forums, articles, you name it and I cannot seem to find anyone who has has a cranio cervical fusion and does not have Chiari. What I'd like to know-is it easier then what I've read because they aren't touching as much when they are doing a decompression also? What is the outcome? What about the expecatiations (ie-hospital stay, PT, recovery time.)
Anyone with any insight please let me know! As many of you know, this is a very scary and difficult decision.
Thank you all!

  Hi...well u know I am waiting on this surgery, and there r many reasons y...but, mayb u would want to talk with one other surgeon to see diff in how they may approach this surgery and it may help u understand it and relax u a bit...I know Dr Henderson in MD also does this surgery with great success, and may be someone to help u understand how and y it is done and how or what he does that may diff from Dr B....

Just a thought that may help : )
