Had an LP

Posted , 1 user is following.

I have a pseudotumor cerebri and my only treatment is to have an LP done every 2-3 months to relieve the pressure. I have been having them done regularly for 4 years now...I just had one done last Tuesday, so it’s been 8 days...a couple of days ago my back started itching and I realized I hadn’t taken the bandage off yet so I took it off but now that spot is itching really bad and there’s a knot/bump there. Has anyone ever experienced anything like this before? I thought maybe it was a bug bite but that’s a pretty big coincidence that it’s exactly where my LP site is. Thank you!
