Had surgery 9 weeks ago. Craniotomy, duraplasty, c1 laminectomy. Ended up in icu 9 days with pneumonia and csf leak. Did blood patch. Recovery was very difficult with pneumonia. About 5 weeks ago I started getting pressure in occipital region. Pins and needles, head still numb. The only time pressure relieves itself, when I stand up. Feel like my brain is going to pop out, dizziness too. It's horrible. NS did ct scan, he said everything looks great. Nothing wrong. WHAT? Please help....this is worse than before surgery. GP and NS are both saying, you should be fine now. Cured!! Ugh!!
