Patient Comments (1)
in Lancaster,Pa |
Had a surgery and should of returned to work within 2 weeks. Never happens. The day of discharge no one looked at my incision. I ended up with 2 spinal fluid leaks, rare type of meningitis and then hydrocephalus all from October to February with 5 different surgeries and then I had to go to rehab for 2 1/2 weeks. This was 3 1/2 years ago. Since then I've had an unsteady gait, dizziness, neuropathy and 2 more VP shunt placements this year cause of the same type of meningitis by another surgeon.
