ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I've had six surgeries since I was 12. The surgeries were a spinal fusion (full back 2000), laparoscopy (2009 for Endometriosis), Laperotamy (2010 for Endometriosis), De Quervain's Tendon Release (2011 right wrist), VP Shunt (2012 for IIH) and an emergency Cholecystectomy (2019 for severe Cholecystitis. I have Epidural injections in my Lumbar spine for severe arthritis every couple of months. I live with many different illnesses. Which are Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension (A.K.A. Pseudotumor Cerebri), Papilledema (from IIH), Memory Problems (from IIH & Fibromyalgia), Vision Problems (from IIH), Chronic Pain, Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, Endometriosis, Raynaud’s Syndrome, Nerve Damage (right wrist), Tendonitis (left shoulder), Damaged muscle (left shoulder), Bursitis (numbness right shoulder blade), Degenerative Disc Disease, Chondromalacia Patella (right) and Neuropathy. I was a very healthy person up until I had my first surgery, the spinal fusion. Ever since then, my health went downhill. Nobody really knows why but some doctors blame the spinal fusion.
