On November 30th, the Mona team took Nico to get his second MRI done.
It has been a year since Nico had an MRI done for the first time and since we found out he was suffering from Chiari syndrome and syringomyelia. During his surgery last January, the surgeons eliminated the malformation that had provoked a brain herniation. In Nico’s case the syringomyelia, which is a cyst, wasn’t operated on, has it can resorb itself with time. We took Nico for his second and hopefully last MRI to make sure the cyst had disappeared. The x-ray films will be sent to the neurosurgeons that operated on and we will soon receive the results.
