ok I can't go into chat so I will update all here.

I went to my neuroosurgeon on Aug 24 as an emergency and he sent me immediately to the hospital. I have such a great doctor. He skipped administration and sent me right to neurosurgery bed ready.

So the big fluid build up was spinal fluid. Had surgery first thing Sept 1st. He did an aspiration and another laminectomy. All the muscle spasm is gone and can lay on my back again woohoo! Was put on 24hr bed rest, no sitting up or getting out of bed at all. Will be allowed up in 6hrs.

So all is good for now and will see if my spinal headaches are gone.

Thank you everyone for your prayers and good wishes. Hoppe everyone is doing well too.
