Hi and welcome yes I had a lumbar puncture or should I say 3 punctures at one time because he kept hitting the bone. They told me to go home a lay flat for 4 hrs and that was it.
The next day I had an Drs. appt. but I ended up getting a headache that wouldn't quit unless I layed down went away almost immediately came back as soon as I sat up. Was told it was a spinal headache from the lumbar puncture and I needed to go in for a blood patch.
I went in and was told that sometimes it can take 2 patches to work, fortunately for me it only took one but my doctor had to put the blood patch in all 3 punctures because I was leaking spinal fluid.
You might want to ask if you can get another blood patch if the first one didn't work.View Thread
Tim I am sorry to hear this - do you know when her graduation is? Can you go to see this wonderful ceremony take place?
I will pray that your daughter comes back home and all will be resolved.
I can feel your pain in this - because 6 months before my daughters high school graduation she went missing, she came home after school changed her clothes I drove her to work - she never came home that was in 1994 she just turned 18, I haven't seen or heard from her since, my son and I have tried to find her but can't so we continue to pray for her return or find out about her.View Thread
