Welcome to the board. I'm so sorry for the pain u'r in! Yes, do try to go back for the blood patch. I'd call the doc and see if u can convince him/her to ok this. If not then as far as i'm aware, u do have to wait. The facility u would use for this proceedure will not do it without a doctor's order. Otherwise, just lay flat...i'm sorry...for a long and as much as u can. Drink plenty of fluids and get some caffiene in u. That caffiene seems to help in speeding recovery of the headache. Take care friend and please let us know the results of the test and how u'r doing.
