You may need decompression surgery to reduce the pressure at the base of your brain. The surgeon will make an incision at the back of your head and remove a small piece of bone from the base of your skull. This will widen the space in the foramen magnum (opening to the skull). They may also remove a small piece of bone from the top of your spine, to relieve the pressure on your brain and allow CSF to flow normally.
I hope have answered your query , feel free to ask if you have any query
wish you good health. Regards
