Hello, I know most of you will not have had a choice or maybe not even known about chiari before being pregnant. But I just wondered, if you were in a situation where you could choose to opt for surgery before or after having children, what would you recommend? Is there a chance of reoccurence following surgery if you become pregnant following decompression?
I’m feeling really confused. I have symptoms of chiari, and the vision/brain fog/memory loss/concentration are my biggest concerns, although i have pressure headaches, they aren’t debilitating at the moment. I just don’t know what to do, if my csf flow is normal would you delay surgery? If its restricted or blocked completely, is that a requirement for surgery asap?
I don’t want any worsening in my symptoms but i also don’t want unnecessary surgery, any opinions or experiences would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you, Amy xxx
