I had decompression surgery about two and a half years ago for chiari type 1. My symptoms have not improved and after several MRIs my surgeon has informed me that scar tissue has built up around the brain stem blocking the ventricle and preventing sufficient CSF flow. Endoscopic third ventriculostomy. Has anyone experienced needing this as a second surgery following their decompression?
Symptoms post op include migraine, pressure, nausea, clumsiness, fatigue, muscle pain etc.
