Surgery date: July 2014

Mrs Magdalena Frankowska from Poland tells u show she has been suffering from strong pain for 20 years. After years of searching and specialist appointments, a neurosurgeon from Nowa Sól diagnosed Arnold Chiari Syndrome and Syringomyelia. She was not ready for this diagnosis; and at the same time she was surprised by the physicians words, who advised against the suboccipital craniectomy and who told her that there was no cure for these diseases. Nevertheless, the neurosurgeon mention a new method that was being developed in Barcelona.

With the help of the Internet, Mrs Magdalena Frankowska found the Institut Chiari de Barcelona and contacted Kasia, who is responsible for patients from Poland. Today, three days after the surgery, she tells us that she feels much better. Before, she was afraid to get up in the morning and to go to the bathroom, and now she does not have this problem anymore. Mrs Frankowska has also noticed other changes: she walks differently, her hearing has improved, she does not have any swallowing problems, he eyes don’t hurt, etc. She feels better generally.

Mrs Magadelna Frankowska is aware of the fact that only three days have passed, but she already feels a lot of improvements, especially concerning her everyday activities. She advises against the craniectomy and recommends the Institut Chiari de Barcelona.
