Chiari Decompression Surgery
My husband (32) got out of the Marine Corps in December 2007. He started having really bad headaches that he described to the Dr. as being worse than a migraine. the did the CT Scan and discovered that he had Chiari Malformation Type 1. So April 25th 2008 he had the surgery done. Yesterday we were watching a movie and he complained of another bad headache. I asked him where at and he showed me. That is when I noticed that he had a bump on his head. there was no redness to it or no scratches around it but I asked him if he hit his head. He said No. Today the bump isn't as big, but he said that it is still sensitive. He refuses to go to the Emergency Room. I don't know what to do or what this could be. I am scared that it may be something serious and him refusing to go to the ER will make things worse.

Hi!
My daughter also has Chiari.  So, I can relate to being a caregiver of a Chiarian.

I would strongly encourage him to at least call or email his NS soon.  I don't know all of the possibilities of what it could be, but I know enough to know that it should not be ignored.

I know how these guys are about going to doctors, but with Neuro stuff...you just can't wait and see sometimes.

HTH!
