I had a myelogram on Monday and now I am leaking spinal fluid which is causing the worst headaches I have EVER had in my life. For those of you who don't know, a myelogarm is a test where dye is injected in your spinal cord and then xrays are taken.I was suffering for 3 days with the headache before my doctor would even take the time to call me back. I would have gone to the hospital but I had no one to drive me and no baby sitter. Anyways, now I am on strict bedrest (I can only get up to use the bathroom) and I am on Fiorinal for pain and Cipro so I don't get meningitis. If my headache is not gone by Tuesday I might have to get a bloodpatch. This is just yet one more thing to go wrong in the 3 months since my surgery. I can't take it any more!! I just feel like crying all the time and to make matters worse the wheather has been absolutely goreous here and I have had to miss out on so much lately. Sorry to complain but I really needed to vent.
