Question for everyone:
After decompression surgery, has anyone had to have second surgery due to scar tissue causing symptoms?
My son, 22, had surgery at 16, problems have been off and on since then. All tests are currently coming back fine. We discussed possible second surgery, dr. is trying a couple more things first, he wants to be sure that is the right thing to do as it carries more risk.
So, does anyone have any experiences to share about any types of alternative, complementary, holistic healing methods? I'm also currently a student in this area, but obviously chiari is a unique issue. My thought is that if there is scar tissue causing the problem, finding a way to reduce it may help. (acupuncture, massage, essential oils, hypnosis, etc...) I'm doing my own research so I thought I'd check here.
Of course, if he ends up needing a second surgery, we will proceed with that, but I'd like to try everything possible first.
Thanks for any input!!
