Hi- I underwent decompression surgery in March 08', 10 months ago, for Arnnold Chiari type1. The surgery was a success. I no longer get headaches, dizziness, or throbbing after coughing or sneezing. I still have pain from the right base of the skull down the neck and across the shoulder. New symptoms include decrease of energy and a dull pain at the surgical sight, especially in cold and/or rainy weather. I am curious if these symptoms are normal and how long the symptoms should persist.
Thank you for your response.
I actually had a check-up with my PCP in October. All tests came back normal.
The NS said it might take up to a year to fully get my energy back. I did start going back to the gym recently which felt great BUT it hurt to do jumping jacks and other impact moves.
Overall, I think I frustrated because I can't stay awake to do things I used to (go out dancing, hang out with friends after work on Friday.... )How is your energy level??
Good morning, my 2 yr old son had the surgery in oct and he is getting bad headaches too in the middle of the night he will wake up crying and want me to rub his head, i was wondering the same thing if its normal or maybe something else is wrong cuz before the surgery he didnt have any problems that we knew of, he really is just not the same kid and i was hoping this was not going to last to much longer, i hope you feel better!!!!!!!
