I had surgery, but that is not the question u should be asking....u want to locate a true Chiari specialist and rule out related conditions....
We r all different and depending on if all related conditions were taken into account b4 surgery there is a better chance for a smooth recovery....Surgery is not a cure or a fix, just a means to slow progression.
I see u r in the Chiari forum, that is where u will find more answers, many of us do have journals of our Chiari surgical experience.,
Thanks again Selma, I am in Australia and unfortunately no Chiari Clinic here however Dr Nick Little whom I was referred to did work at a Chiari Clinic in the USA. But thanks I will keep doing my research.
