Chiari Online Support Group

Hi new here

Hi and thanks for letting me join. I’m a mum of 3 sons. Happily married.
I have chiari type 1 was found in an MRI that I was having regularly for a migraine and pineal cyst. I also have fibromyalga osteoarthritis to name a few.
My neurologist gave me the option have have nothing done or to see a specialist for chiari. I talked about it with my hubby and family looked chiari up on Internet and decided after 4 months down the line to be referred to see the surgeon I waited nearly 6 months.
I finally had my appointment on 6th March seen the surgeon he went through everything that has affected me and said I’m booking you in for surgery on 11th Aprl had my pre op assessment 28th March and I’m now conunting down the days, I have so much to do before the op… Things like my nails got to get the acrylics taken off and manicure having my eyes tested today, having my hair cut and coloured on 6th meeting up with my sons , my parents who have been so supportive and do so much for me.

Take care red
