First LP. Need some advice

Posted , 1 user is following.

I have IH and I had brain surgery for a csf leak in my skull this August. It was fixed but my symptoms of IH got worse and the Neuro surgeon said it would. He order an LP. I have had a drain put in my back for about 6 days in the hospital but I was put out for that. I did get a headach after the LP but I always get headaches due to the IH. My questions are can you get a blood clot such as a PE or DVT from an LP? I also have really bad dull and sometimes nerve pain in my back, left thigh and leg. I'm also worried about a csf leak in my spine. How would I know if I have a csf leak in my back if I have IH problems?
