CSF rhinorrhea after surgery

Hello, I had orbital decompression in Feb just after surgery I told the Doc about a bad headache and no sense of smell, he said that he was no concerned with either because it should not be from the surgery. Well the head aches grew to the point that the week of march 26 I had left 5 messages for him(one each day) about the headaches. On the 31st I called his cell number because of the headache dizziness and nausea he ordered a ct scan and confirmed an CSF Leak and brain hanging into my sinus.

After a month of waiting I finally found that the only way to repair this is by crainiotomy. Looking for info on frontal craniotomy.

Thank you
