my husband has had pneumoccal meningitis twice. 1st time just over 3 years ago and second time last January. over the last 8 months he has had many (and I do mean many!) scans et al and suddenly he is referred to "the regional base of skull clinic". He has now been informed he needs neurotosurgery urgently to repair a hole/holes in the base of skull/roof of inner ear - or he will have another bout of meningitis SOON. He has reluctantly agreed and surgery is scheduled for Jan 22nd.
Please, is there anyone out there who has experience of this and perhaps reduce our apprehension.
