This is a photo post of the procedure I had done on Aug. 22, 2011.
If things like this my disturb you, or if you have an aversion to needles, please do not look.
I’m publishing this, solely for those who have a curiosity about this procedure, and for my own prosperity.
I apologize I do not have any photos of the Lumbar Puncture, or the Myelogram. I didn’t think to ask my husband to start taking pictures until we were at this stage.
This series is patching one leak. This had to be repeated for each of the 7 leaks they patched.
Please remember I’m on my face the entire time. I did not see this procedure until I was able to see the photographs. We are relying solely on my husband’s memory for the descriptions. Please forgive us if something is slightly off.
Also, these photos were taken with his phone, so please forgive the quality.
(He was a bit more concerned about what was going on with me, instead of taking notes on the procedure. I keep telling him, that he can do both…but somehow, he just doesn’t believe me.)
I hope you enjoyed your little snippet of my day at Duke Medical.
Thank you to Dr. Linda Gray Leithe and her wonderful team for allowing us to take photos, and for taking such wonderful care of me.
