Still being treated. Had Scia tic problem. Neuro SURGEON WENT IN, CUT PIECE OF BONE AWAY FROM NERVE, pain gone. Two days later, back in hospital throwing up, and terrible headaches. What happened, the Surgeon cut the duration sac, and Spinal Fluid leaked in my body causing Spinal Mennigitis. My back in the area of the operations s, anwelled like a baseball was under the skin. The surgeon let me suffer like this for 45 days before hospitalization and 3 more procedures to repair me. I spent 30 days in intensive care with Mennigitis then 15 more days in isolation. I am disabled, in severe pain, and falling down all the time. My back and other parts of my torso look like a checkerboard I am taking dozens of drugs, pain killers. I have been going for pain trigger injections. I have been left a mess, and can't have sex due to pain!
