2 Month Post Op

Postby GeminiMisty » Mon Jul 27, 2009 8:23 pm

I had my PFD with Dr.Oro in colorado on may 27th.Before the surgery i had to use a wheel chair alot of times.I started to see real results around 6 weeks post op.I no longer have to use the wheel chair and ive been free of pain medicine for 9 days.This is the best ive felt in months.

I truly beleive this surgery has given me hope.I know this is a treatment and not a cure.I still have the syrinx but hopefully with the next mri it will show it starting to collapse.

I was dxed feb2nd with a 7mm chiari and 39mm long by 8 mm wide syrinx.May 27th my syrinx had grown to 10 mm wide.

I am truly blessed to have found this support group because without you i dont know how my life would be today.
