I am 8 weeks post op and feel absolutely wonderful. All of my troublesome chiari symptoms are gone. My energy level is higher than it has been in years. I have been back to work for three weeks and I am so surprised that I am not ready to fall over of exhaustion by the end of day.
Going into surgery, I expected the worse. My hospital stay wasn't even 48 hours. Recovery has not been that bad at all. I've gotten very good at listening to my body and resting when it tells me.
For those facing surgery, I hope all goes well for you!
