I am scheduled for PFD surgery June 4th,09 here in Portland OR.
This will be my 4th surgery in 11 months and hopefully my last for some time to come :)
In addition to CM I also have Intracranial Hypertension with LP Shunt.
CM shows currently 6.9mm herniation and less then 49% CSF flow.
I will keep posted after surgery.
Bless you all!

Our 13 year old Grant had PFD with craniotomy and cervical fusion of c-1 and c-2 at the University of Iowa In Iowa City on March 31st. We are 3 months out and his headaches are significantly better. He is wearing a Manerva Brace 24 hours a day and has tolerated this well. His reflux is so much better and his food doesn't stick in his throat any more. He was dx with chiari one malformation last year. Will be wearing this brace until at least October. Thanks for this forum. I am happy to post positive news. God Bless. Toni
