Hello Jenny and welcome to the team. Awesome to have you join us. Am glad that you are on your way to a healthier you. You have my support as I too have had the decompressiion surgery. I have not had the cervical-cranial fusion, they just removed the C-1 and C-2 vertebrae. Please feel free to ask me anything you need to know or just to chat. I have added you as a friend and hope you do the same. Have a blessed day....Maria

I'm a back here again and happy to find this group. I have Chiari too and I am recovering from my decompression and cervical-cranial fusion. It's been a long road, but i am doing better each day. Hoping to find mutual support and understanding here.

Hello Amanda and welcome to the team. Yes there are a few members here with Chiari and it is great to find someone else that can relate to the struggle we face when trying to get healthy and dealing with a debilitating condition such as chiari malformation. Trying to workout is definitely the worst... The good news is that sparkpeople is a community that has helped many members lose weight despite their health issues. I have lost 30 lbs. so far and I am hoping to lose about 25 more. Stay focused and do not get discouraged along the way. Even when it seems impossible you will get healthier with sparkpeople. Reach out as much as you need to and use all of the available resources that are a blessing to us all. Have a great journey and never give up. You can do it. Take it from me. Let me know if you need anything and I will be glad to assist you as much as possible....Maria

Hello everyone, my name is Amanda. I am 20 years old, from Rhode Island. I was diagnosed with type 1 chiari malformation when I was 16 years old. I have yet to go through with the decompression surgery, as the whole idea terrifies me! From reading through some of the message boards on here I have seen that there are many people here with Chiari. This makes me hopeful, as I have been trying to find ways I can exercise without straining myself and causing those awful headaches!!
