I did add this to the polls if everyone could answer there.

Hate to say this I dont have any more headaches . Had surgery in 1999. Knocking hard on wood . :)
I choose not to place "DIS" in my ability.

There is a light at the end of every tunnel....just pray it's not a train!.

My headaches were relieved for just 2 weeks after surgery then came back. I have one every day that ranges from aching and annoying to intense...I am 3 years post op.

Hi KM, I"m glad you are back safely from your trip!

I had read Afleming's earlier post and she asked this question but it was in a longer topic. I suggested to her that she start a new topic and just ask the simple question of all you decompressed Chiarians out there...I'm glad to see some of you reply! This will be so helpful to her and many others, I think.

hugs

So most of you still have headaches after the surgery? That would be the one reason I would have the surgery! So I wonder why bother doing it if I am not going to be any better than I am now.
Going thru frustration right now.

Well I think that many of us dont only have ACM and/or SM, we have many other problems as well. My cervical kyphosis (unnatural curve of the neck) that is putting pressure and flattening my spinal cord could also be causing my headaches and many other symptoms.

Maybe there should be poll for people with only ACM, that have had surgery that still have headaches?? The problem is finding them b/c like I said, most have mulitple problems going on and who knows what is causing what, kwim?

Headaches

Postby emmacos » Wed Jun 27, 2007 4:38 pm

Hi,

My 15 yr old daughter still gets headaches and she is almost 3 yrs post op. Her neurologist treats her with migraine medication, but they dont seem like migraine headaches to me! She developed a pseudomeningocele after her decompression surgery and she still has that, so I tend to put the headaches down to that, whether I am right or not I dont know! Her neuro surgeon doesnt feel the pseudo is a problem! She doesnt get headaches all the time, she can go long periods without one, then get some really bad ones, or just some niggly ones. She takes propranolol beta blockers to ward off 'migraines'.
