Hello all,
I just received my last MRI report and, amongst other things, have a small pseudomeningocele at the site of my laminectomy.  Anyone have any information on how they treat this?  I am due to see my doctor next week, but I am a bit anxious about it.  I am 12 months post 2 level fusion and still having pain.

I have one - it was detected about 2 months after a double-laminectomy.  Three out of three neurosurgeosns all tell me the same thing.."Absolutely no surgery...we'll just watch it."  It has only grown a small amount in the past 2 years - doesn't hurt.  But mine is tangled up with nerves so the docs say that surgery is too dangerous.  I recently had a neuro-stimulator implanted to help with the excruitiating pain that I was left with after the surgery.
