CSF Leak after laminectomy surgery
After having laminectomy surgery on L5-S1 I had a CSF leak that gushed like a water hose.  I was sent to the ER the next day where they sewed it up and sent me home on complete bed rest.  The spinal fluid pooled where I was sewn.  It became the size of a grapefruit before it burst approx three weeks later.  (both times to the ER I was saturated from head to toe in fluid).  This time they finally did emergency surgery to fix the leak.  I had two spinal drains coming out my back for seven days.  Then sent home on bed rest for another week.  Since the surgeries I have right side weekness, and more pain than before the surgery.
Can you help me or at least understand more than it was not the Dr. fault or anything I did.

Sincerely Betty
