my 20yr old daughter was diagnosed with cm 11/08. she had decompression surgery in december 08. Surgery was a success. She felt pretty good, however 2 months later, she started feeling fatigued with headaches and just "looked" pale and lethargic. It was discovered that the fluid was leaking through the patch....a stitch had broken.....she went in again in feb 09 for her surgeon to repair the leak. Now, here we are in october,09 and have a new "leak". An MRI was done and shows the fluid leaking through and on the wrong side...has anyone else had these issues.....I am A worried mother wondering if we should seek out a new surgeon or not. Ours is a highly regarded one in our area and my daughter seems to feel confident in him.....Are these leaks just par for the course? thankyou for your input. Worried Mom.
