Zip Me Up


Did you know that people after a Chiari decompression surgery are know as zipperheads due to the zipper like scar on the back of their neck?

In summer of 2017, I had decompression surgery.  They removed about 2 large postage stamps worth of skull at the base, removed 1/3 of my C1 vertebrae and fixed 3 small holes which were leaking spinal fluid.

This gave my brain more space and stopped a lot of the symptoms.  But there is a catch....

I can't lift over 25 lbs, wear high heels, do impact exercises or do anything that could cause whiplash effect.

If I do something to cause the brain to herniate more, they will have to remove the portion of the brain that is hanging down.

Time for big changes.
