I am a 37 year old female athletic runner, 5'10 140 lbs. I have 5 boys ages 12 to 3 all were vaginal birth with no complications. All boys perfect help and I returned home after birth the next day every time with healthy boys. I had a simple L4/L5 lateral dysectomy on Nov.10 due to ruptured disk that went great until Dec 22. That day I began having severe headaches which the only relief required me to lay flat on my back. Does anyone have suggestions?? Since the orginal surgery I have had two blood patches no success. Then they tried derma glue which eased pain for 2 weeks. Next they tried using some of my muscle to make a graph and cover the leak area. After that a dr did surgery under a scope for 5 hours to carefully repair any leaks. About 10 days after that I began to develope a huge bulge on my back that started the same symptoms. TERRIBLE HEADACHES!!!! Again they went back in used a special stich to try and stop leakage and once again 10 days spot has returned on my back and the headaches are back. The only surgical procedure that has not been used is a lumbar drain put in on L2 and they will again repair the leaks and use the drain to keep L4 and L5 dry. Does anyone have knowledge of this procedure or other suggestions please?????
