Hi Kayti - Dr. Oro in Colorado did my decompression surgery on Dec.11. I felt better immediately.
The hard part is not overdoing it when you get home. You have my best wishes on your
recovery.

My daughter (Nina) is scheduled for craniotomy / cervical laminectomy / duraplasty on Feb. 9th at Cook Children's Medical Center in Fort Worth, TX. She's a wonderful, intelligent 9 year old and I wish I could take her place. Her mother and I are counting the minutes until her surgery. Anyone have any infromation re: recovery? She has a 17mm Chiari and a holocord syrinx from C-3 to L-2. Her decompression might require a laminectomy involving C-1 and C-2. Any info. would be greatly appreciated.

As I have not had my surgery yet, I do not have much information to share with you, Burntmedics, but I just wanted to say good luck and I"ll be praying for you. No one should have to go through this, but especially not a child. Hopefully the surgery will be successful and bring her a lot of relief.
