I’m new. I was just diagnosed last year. Long story short and a few doctors in the past, I have now been told that my ACM is the root of all the problem that I have been having with my health lately. I am a mother of 2 small boys, 2 and 4. I would really love some help understanding the Chiari. They have referred me to a neurosurgeon this month and I am very anxious about it. I have researched on the net about surgery. My husband worries a lot. We don’t hear much about this kind of thing where we live. Please help enlighten us with any personal experiences you would like to share. If I could ask more questions, I would be very grateful.
