2months post op and symptoms are coming back

Hey, I had my surgery exactly 2months ago and despite 2 rounds of chemical meningitis, a leak and a whole load of pressure problem things have been pointing upwards. But about a week ago symptoms started to get worst again. I won't be seeing my ns again until January and he's never really been that clear with recovery periods ect. Just wondering if this has happened to anyone else and if stuff does get bad again what happens? Thank you, Rosie xxx

  Hi...it is typical to have some symptoms return as u heal....as the nerves return to normal or come back to life u will feel a return of symptoms....it or they should not be as bad as b4 surgery or last as long....

If u develop something new, u should let ur Dr know.....same with if it feels  worse then b4...

We have to be mindful of what we do as we heal as it does take time....as if u over do it u can also have a flare up of symptoms.

I did not have my MRI until 1 yr post op, it all depends on what is going on as to the timeline of what is done when...so ur Dr will do things on a timeline that fits u and ur recovery..
