I had three blood patches (February, March and July 2012) which did heal the holes in the spinal cord covering. One holes was cause by a lumbar puncture to check my spinal fluid which came back okay. Believe it.
I also had eye surgery for Lazy Eye Syndrome which was caused by the optic nerve sagging with the brain.
Now I am on Modafinil to help with the brain fog.
Not much of a story but the outcome is still brain problems
