Who do I call if I experience complications? 

Go to the nearest emergency department if you have any of the following:

  • Your temperature rises above 38.5 °C or 101 °F and you feel chills.
  • You have a severe headache that does not go away.
  • Daylight causes intolerable pain in your eyes.
  • Your neck becomes very stiff and sore, making it painful to bend your head forward.
  • You are less alert.
  • You have a nose bleed that will not stop.
  • The amount of fluid from your nose doesn’t decrease after 1 week. This may be caused by a CSF leak.
  • You are losing too much fluid from your body:
    • You are urinating (peeing) more than usual.
    • You are getting up 3 to 4 times at night to urinate (pee).
    • You often feel very thirsty.
  • You feel very tired and have very low energy.

Please call your neurosurgeon or Physician Assistant/Nurse Practitioner to let us know that you have had these symptoms and have gone to the emergency department.
