lumbar spinal fluid leak

I wanted to know if spinal fluid leak can come back? Can it cause damage?  I had lumbar laminectomy and cyst removed from my sacrum.  I had a lump on the left side of my rectum and the lump got worse along with pain it got so bad i was unable to walk.  I went to the emergency room and they did a MRI found that I had spinal fluid leak, so they admitted me then took the fluid out 2days later.  they took out 4 vails of fluid under the ct scan.  I had headaches but not bad it was the lump that worried me.  Know I am having the same symptoms again and not sure if the fluid could have been leaking all this time and is very slow leak.  The radiologist stated it could cause damage but the doctor who did the surgery said it couldn't.  I don't know what to believe anymore.  This surgery turned out to be a nightmare. I have had nothing but problems from this surgery, I lost feeling, have pain everyday, unable to sit for long peroids of time as the pain gets worse, can't stand long ect.  I also had rectocele surgery done after the back surgery as this caused weakness in this area, Could the surgery on my back cause the pain I am having in my pelvic and anal area?  I am so fed up with these problems..please help????????????????
