I am 25 years old. I had a herinated disc of the L5-S1 that was herinated. I had a llaminectomy / discectomy. Stayed one night in the hospital and was sent home the next day. The day after i was sent home i had severe headaches when i sat up and stood up along with lightheadedness and naseua. My home therapy nurse said that i had a spinal fluid leak. I told my doctors office and they didn't reply with any response. About 2week's of not getting up or moving and getting anything solved i was sent to the hospital abd admitted. At first they thought i gad tension headaches and to drink gatorade and my headaches would go away. Then i was told i had migraines. Doctors did mri's of my head n back and nothing seemed wrong. Doctors tried to send me home day after day. One day i had 2 seizures and a temperature of 104.7. My nurse kept telling my family get her out if this hospital before the doctor kills her. My mother asked the doctor when he was going to do something when I was dead. After a spinal tap n 35 cc of thick yellow cloudy fluid was extracted from my spine was i taken seriously. I was transferred to the ICU and was diagnosed with baterial meningitis. It took 3 days for my temperature to go down. I had to have a second back surgery and my doctor still never said i had a spinal fuild leak. But my nurses all said that is what i had and that is how I got bacterial meningitis. I spent 3 weeks in the hospital. From March 7, 2015 to March 23, 2015. As to this day May 28 2015 i still have headaches. I have pixelated vision at times and blurry vision most of the time. I don't know if I will ever work again because as soon as i step into a lighted room or any type of loudness i get a severe headache that will last hours and no medications seem to help me. I have no clue what I need to do next.
