Update on how I am one week post op

Just wanted to let everyone know how I am doing one week post op! I am completely off my pain pills. I just took some ibprophen today just for muscle pain. Not BAD at all! Take you best day with Chiari and times that by 100! I feel so great. It really wasn't as bad as I thought this was going to be. The first few dayss I asked myself why I did this, but now I don't think I would ever regret doing this! Just know everyone who is waiting or trying to make the decision to do it or not. Yes there are alot of complications that can happen, but the good completely outweighs the bad!

Hugs and prayers,


I’m glad that everything went fine for you and you are feeling better. Just keep us posted through out your jounery and don’t push your self to do too hard just one day at a time.

That’s great to hear!!! I’m so happy for you. My first consults are today.

I am so happy for you. I totally agree with you. Having the surgery has in so many ways made my life better. There are always chances of complications with any surgery, but considering everyday we take chances with our lives in everyday activities, this is something that should be done hands down.

So glad to hear that you are doing well. Congrats!!! Please continue to update us. You are giving me such encouragement and hope for my own upcoming surgery.

I'm so happy for you Amber!! I'll remember your words next week when it's my turn.

So happy for you, it makes my upcoming surgery just a little less scary.

Yay Amber! I am so glad that you are doing excellent! I am 2 weeks post-op, feeling awesome, but still have to take it easy and rest. I have done more sleeping than I have anything.
Keep your chin up!



Thank God!!!! I am so thrilled to read your post....this will surely help those who have upcoming surgeries!!!!!

Be sure not to over-do!!!!!
