The Dr. did the Spinal Tap last Friday. He started having Migraines and throwing up..he went back Saturday and had a Caffeine shot and other meds. He is still having headaches when he sits up so he stays flat. He will probably go back to the ER after he calls the Dr.( He cant sit up in the Dr.'s office. ) They are about 1/4 mile from the hospital.

Sorry to hear he's suffering after the spinal tap. I gather this kind of headache isn't unknown after this kind of procedure. Spinal headaches might only be temporary but apparently they're very unpleasant. I hope he begins to feel better soon.

Words fail me at what to say Marge. Your son has so much courage and your Mother's heart is so large, caring and courageous. There surely cannot be many more 'set backs'.

I admire you, care deeply about all you are going through and more than anything else hope, trust and pray for a good outcome.

It is 3:30 Pm and he is still at the hospital. Last I heard the Dr. was going to inject red blood into the same spot as the tap. he has been leaking spinal fluid.

If conservative treatment doesn't help, the doctor may recommend injecting a small amount of your blood into the space over the hole in the dura. This is known as an epidural blood patch. The injected blood forms a clot that seals the puncture hole, restoring normal pressure in the spinal fluid and relieving your headache
