MIA

Hello all,

I'm hoping this works 'cos I'm attempting to post from my iPhone. I wanted to come on here to explain my recent absence.

Following my lumbar puncture I sustained complications. For my lumbar puncture they drain my spinal fluid to lower the pressure around my brain, they took too much spinal fluid this time and dropped the pressure too much. I wasn't able to walk, sit up or eat for five days. I spent six days in hospital and I am now home. I still have a headache and have been told it may last another week. If it doesn't go they will get me back into hospital for a procedure where they inject blood into my spine - I really don't want that so please cross your fingers it goes!

Just wanted to let you know, apologies for not replying to e-mails etc but hopefully I will be able to soon.

Best wishes to you all,

  17. Oh Michelle, I do hope it doesn't come to them having to inject blood into your spine. What you've gone through already sounds just terrible.
    I accompanied my sister when she had her lumbar puncture and witnessed the horrible after effects with her procedure - where there were no complications! So I cannot begin to imagine what you are going through.
    Take it easy, I hope you have someone who can take care of you.
    Lots of hugs and feel better wishes,
    Elizabeth x x x x x
