Did you ever do anything about your meningeocele repair? I ran across your post today and I have had a few surgeries (lumbar) and I have a large meningeocele now. They say they can't repair it from my back anymore because I don't have enough muscle to basically close me up. Also, my dura has actually been cut all three surgeries so I have arachnoiditis also.
Just wondering what your treatment was and if you ever had the surgery. Thanks!
