Steve’s Story – Cipro Induced Chiari Malformation

I was poisoned in June of 2015 by cipro and it led to Chiari decompression surgery: taking a chunk out of the back of my skull, removing back half of my C1 vertebrae, and removing a piece (and then putting back) of the lining of my lower brain. IT CAUSED DRUG-INUCED CHAIRI. Then I had to fly to Barcelona, Spain to have the bottom of my spinal cord released to help reduce pressure on the bottom of my brain. Since the cipro I have been diagnosed with the following which I never had before taking the drug: chairi malformation, tethered cord syndrome, heart nodules, start of lymphoma, limpoma in groin, central apnea, obstructive apnea, peripheral neuropathy, cervical instability, and now a possible abdominal aortic aneurysm. Oh yeah, and I have gotten to spend the past two and a half years in bed.
