status post surgery

Postby wink1047 » Wed Dec 08, 2010 8:08 pm

My daughter had surgery on Sept 8, 2010 for CM1. She is now experiencing excruciating, debilitating headaches that are so severe that I have had to take her to the ER for IV meds just so she can function. She is on anti nausea medicine, and Noretryptillin for headache prevention. 2 Catscans were negative, and surgeon has said headaches are not coming from the surgery. Family doc says headaches are muscle related, and stress related from the surgery, and from tension in her neck. I am at my wits end dealing with this. She has missed so much school, and her life is on hold just dealing with this chronic pain. Does anyone have any solutions or ideas of what we can try next? I would really appreciate any input from someone who has been through it. Thanks!! Lisa

I am wondering from just what I have read on this forum if she is rejecting the patch put in. Did they use a bovine patch?

I do not know if a bovine patch was used. I will have to call the surgeon.
*** update - I just reread the operative report. A pericranial graft was used. So , no bovine. Any other thoughts ? thanks!!!!

Have they tried steriods? This sometimes helps.
