Chairi Malformation Diagnosis

I’ve been dealing with undiagnosed issues for all my life but no one could ever figure out why I would pass out. For eleven years I had ever test except a ct and mri of my brain. Yesterday I went to the ER after passing out for the first time since being away at college. They did a CT and MRI, turns out I have Chairi Malformation.
As much as that’s great to finally know what’s wrong, it’s also horrible news. I was essentially told I need decompression surgery but my parents won’t pay for it until I get a second opinion.
I want surgery just for the slim chance of decreasing the severity of my symptoms but it’s also terrifying. There are so many things that could go wrong.
I’m also having to rethink so many things and I’m going to have to put my life on hold for surgery. I just started college, I don’t want to have to take a semester off. I may also never be a surgeon because I can barely stand for more than two minutes without passing out, I won’t make it as a surgeon.
I’m so scared of everything and I have zero support. No one in my life understands what I am going through physically and mentally.
