I'm new to this site, here is my story:
I had spinal fusion surgery done in July 2012. I had a severe headache when i woke up in hospital. I was elevated when I was supposed to be flat. I left the hospital with a headache. I contacted my doctor several times complaining of headaches in the next 2 weeks. In the 3rd week I blacked out at home falling on concrete and busted my chin open, resulting in 8 stitches. I had another black out 2 weeks later. Went back to same Dr. With this spinal fluid leak and he did 2 more surgeries trying to correct the dura lining he had nicked during the 1st surgery. He failed 3 times and sent me to another Dr. Who performed the surgery correcting the issue and replacing 2 screws from the 1st surgery. The 1st Dr. claims that the hospitals (2) changed the type of glue and that is why the nicked dura lining was not staying sealed when he performed 3 of the 4 surgeries. I had 4 back surgeries in 45 days. I now am suffering physical and mental pain. I've had to quit my job.
I was diagnosed April 2015 with Fibromyalgia. I'm now suffering with pain in my hands and feet. My back is also in pain like before my first back surgery...I'm seeing my doctor for a CT scan on Nov. 17th.
