ummmm....YES!!!! Im 11 months post and still get debilitating headaches! unless you are having a reaction to any of the medications you are on - - or they are starting to take you off of. there is also the chance of other infections too - it all depends on your symptoms to define that.
are you still in the hospital? when and where was your decompression done? give your body time to heal. REST and take your meds! They will help you relax and your brain heals while you are at rest. Baby steps. . . . one day at a time. :)
hope things are better for you soon.
I would have to agree... if not still in the hospital call the doc on call NOW! It is possible to have something going on and the sooner they know about it the better. I havent had surgery yet for this but I would think the surgical pain should start to improve in 4 days not get worse.
It isn't me it's my daughter. She had her surgery last Wednesday and is making very little improvement. They did a CAT scan yesterday late afternoon. They said everything looked OK just the same post op sweling at the site she had the day after surgery. She has been off most narcotics (except valium) for two days. She says (when she will answer) that these headaches are worst than the chairi headaches she had before surgery. I am just trying to understand what to expect. Here surgery was last Wednesday. They said she had a moderate to severe case. They did have to cut and patch the dura. They removed a lot of scarring and thinned the arachnid. ?? Any help would be appreciated.
i agree with selma and like she said....keep her flat for a few days with lots of liquids!!! apparently you've already called her dr. does she have any fluid leaking from her nose? my money would be on a csf leak or infection. keep pushing the dr if she doesn't improve with laying flat. good luck and keep us posted!
