my ACM surgery 2009

Hello i had surgery in 2009.it was so worst .now its like all my pain  comes back and the worst issue with breating in night is also coming back.some info said that we patients just stop breathing in  deep sleep and will not awake .It may sound strange ...but i like to know do ACM patients still die earlier ?

  Hi and welcome to the Chiari forum.

I am so sorry u r having these issues post op, and that ur Dr did not explain some things to u,such as many with Chiari develop sleep apnea, and it sounds like u may, not treated, yes, u could die, but if u get treatment u should be ok.....

There r many related conditions that can cause us post op issues, especially if not addressed prior to surgery they can affect how we feel and heal.

  Did ur Drs do a post op MRI on u? and if so, what did they say to how u r feeling?
