Dens putting pressure on brain stem

Started by bbrooks61 on 04/22/2010 8:50pm

Hi, I'm new here and was wondering if anyone has been told their dens is turned the wrong direction and putting pressure on your brain stem? I was told by a NS who was seeing me for a 11mm Chiari I malformation, that this was another problem that would have to be dealt with during the decompression surgery. He has restricted my lifting and I was told to be very careful to avoid any trauma to my neck before my surgery.
