    Wait and See,

I went to numerous doctors and well known medical facilities for the past 15 years. I was misdiagnosed with Lupus. I was recently diagnosed with Ehlers - Danlos (genetic test and skin biopsy) and Chiari Malformation 1. I am scheduled for fusion surgery in October. I would like to read other patient's recovery and surgery stories.
