Hi all was hoping for a little advice o thoughts
Last april 2016 I had a second op to detether the spinal cord as it was causing some nerve issues which was effecting the bladder and bowels.
Anyways about 10 days post-op I started getting some nasty lower pains which prevented me from walking or sitting and I needed to lie down to ease the pain, at first when i lied down I got a sharp pain in the lower back where it hurt which subsided but not long after my head started to hurt.
After a short time the pain subsided but I decided to get up as my head was hurting, When I stood up I got a rush of pain in my back then a weired sensation up my back and a sharp pain in my head for a split second and then the pain in the back would get worse again.
Anyways I got in contact with the surgeon who wanted a MRI and could not find any hypertension etc and sent me to pain management etc .
After physio and pain meds etc I still have this issue and I noticed a lump on my back when the pain was bad or about to start and the area was moist. Again I went back to the surgeon and mentioned all this and also suggested that having a MRI lying down may not show all the problem as the pain in the lower back eases and maybe a load baring MRI was necessary. However he mentioned I did have a Pseudomeningocele which did show up on my previous MRI but did agree a standing/sitting MRI may be beneficial.
I am awaiting the results from those.
My main question is to anyone who has had similar issues ! are these types of headaches caused my pressure from the pseudomeningocele ? should this be repaired as ive had this pain for 18 months now and is stopping me having a life as all I seem to do is lie on the bed
