Well, I’m on the flip-side of my LP… Of course, they couldn’t get the IV, took 3 attempt, including “the IV team” w/ the ultrasound. Then the local anesthesia didn’t really kick in so I had to be still in pain til it was done. But I highly recommend it ;-P Actually, aside from this weird metallic taste I have in my mouth, my head pain isn’t as bad. I know it’s only been minutes, but the headache from the LP is stronger than my brain clot headache I came in here.
Will keep ya posted on results.
[NOTE UPDATE : got home & promptly fainted. just wanted to see if they were paying attention 😉 There’s a clean spot on tile in front of fridge now–HA! The 3 of them managed to help me to the floor in the living room for a while but now I’m up in bed.
while I have a pretty strong LP headache… brainclot still not as bad. I’ll probably keep ongoing notes here.]
6:15pm I managed to sleep some and my head still feels like an LP headache. they told me to lie flat but that bothers the clot so it’s a catxh22. didn’t realize how much my back would be sore & stiff 😉 I’m gonna whine abt that for a bit.
9:45pm Guess the reprieve was short-lived… head’s back to hurting again @ clot site
