Sobering comments from neurologist today...
I reported in the SM/CM thread on our MRI results, which were NOT good. We have a tough battle ahead. But not here to get into those details. Wanted to share this for discussion. When we were talking with neurologist before the MRI, he said he could not REMEMBER when he scanned a Cavalier that did not have at least some chiari malformation.... Including Cavs who were there for other symptoms or illnesses that required MRI. He thought it was at least 2 years since he had seen clear MRI. Now he did say that he sees much smaller % with major syrinx formation but that he kind of assumed CM in all Cavaliers, especially under age 7. This floored my husband, but I thought this was very consistent with statistics we have seen reported here. what do you think?
