Re: CSF leak? MRI & Dr.still no clear answers

I think I would try the blood patch. They sometimes say they don't work after surgery but I had a leak and the blood patch did work, after surgery. What do you have to lose? Be sure not to take aspirin, blood thinners or any antiinflammatories for several days before and after the patch, as they interefere with platelet function and can make the patch ineffective. Check with your Dr about this if you are on blood thinners.
