I think I need more details with the procedure that was done. What were the actual proceedings. As I understand it is spinal meningitis and why was a procedure done when it is curable with medicines and good care.

Most of the people recover after simple procedures and you should speak to your doctor about this new development ( ED). It is curable and it needs to be addressed quickly for treatment.
