Son recently diagnosised with Chiari malformation

My son, who is 13, has been diagnosised with chiari malformation. He has had a ct scan and an mri. He is scheduled to have an mri of the spine to check for spyrinx (sp?) We have had one appointment with a pediatric neurologist and he seems to think that no surgery is necessary if this mri of the spine comes out ok. I am very scared and need to talk to people who know what I am going through. help
