User Topic: My daughter had surgery

I've posted before about my daughter's headaches for the past year. She was diagnosed with Chiari Malformation and all tests were normal. She wanted the decompression surgery this summer because she is starting her junior year in college and is preparing for Physical Therapy school. Very hard to get into and excellent grades are a must. Her surgeon wanted her to try pain meds for this semester and if that didn't work, surgery in December. She presented a very good argument and decided to go with the surgery. Her Chiari is very mild and the surgery would not require opening the dura, so we decided to go for it. She is almost 3 weeks post surgery and doing great. She had 13 staples removed on Wednesday and is headache free. The dr. said when opened the membrane cover, the dura just spread out and he could tell there was pressure. He also said the end of the scull bone that they cut off was paper thin and he now thinks this has been causing all of her constant headaches. It's so nice to see her back to being herself.

Much too young to have to deal with pain. So glad the surgery was a success and you have your dd back.

I have a friend whose youngest daughter has Chiari Malformation. She had some pretty serious surgeries a couple of years ago and is doing fantastically. I'm so glad things seem to have gone so well for your daughter! And good luck to her in her preparations for PT school!!
