Hi everyone! Been a VERY long time since I've posted! I've been decompressed since June 2011. I wish I could say it's been all sunshine and roses LOL! A lot of symptoms have come back and I've been diagnosed with occipital neuralgia, so I'm waiting to start getting nerve blocks. So, since my surgery I've had a couple of MRI's that have been "normal". No reports about pseudomeningocele's or anything. I think the last one was Feb. 2012. Last October (2012) I fainted at work and was sent to the local ER where I gave them my history, but it's not my regular hospital. They did a CT on my head. The ER doctor and my pcp said it was normal.
Fast forward to a few weeks ago, when I picked up my entire medical file from my pcp to bring to my new pcp. I got to read EVERYTHING (interesting what you read!!!). The report said it was normal, but that I might have mild chiari malformation (hahaha) and a possible meningocele!! An MRI would be suggested for further diagnostic evaluation. Of course, no one said anything to me about this. So my question is, is it possible the radiologist confused the surgical site as a possible meningocele and that's why nothing was ever said to me? And could something form that long after surgery but between Feb. and October??
