Hi and welcome to the Chiari forum.
Have u had a MRI since ur fall?....It is possible to cause low lying tonsils from a fall and depending on what else is going on in that area may cause Chiari symptoms....it can also cause a syrinx to form....
Did u have all Chiari related conditions ruled out B4 ur surgery?
There are several conditions that have developed for some chiarians post op....seizures, epilepsy, ICP, POTS....are just a few....
I would suggest seeing ur Chiari NS if possible or get a Dr to at least do a MRI...see if u have a CSF obstruction.
Thank you. My PCP is scheduling an MRI and I have called my NS for an appointment. As for the seizures, I have been having them for 15 years now. No one can explain why. I do not know what you mean by ruling out conditions before my surgery. The Chiari malformation was found during a routine MRI of my neck. I had been having symptoms, but they were blamed on other things.
how big was your syrinix bfor they decided to do surgery. i had a recent mri and mine is now from t3 down to t8-9, a year ago was t4 down to t8-9, year before when it was found was t4 down to t8. i have seen some pics of mri's on this site and i dont believe mine is as wide but i sure experience alot of pain.
With Chiari u may have other related conditions....like syringomyelia, tethered cord, ICP, POTS,. or ehlers-danlos...it is important to know if u have ne of these related conditions b4 u decide to treat ur Chiari with surgery as many of them can affect how u feel and heal post op.
I have never had one. I only had a chiari malformation.
