Does anyone on the forum have a (happy) story to tell me about their experience with CM?
My 23 yr old daughter had a brain tumor removed and then a shunt put in, but kept experiencing severe head pain...after many, many tests and different hospitals, she was finally diagnosed with CHemical Menningits, but was also discharged (without any medication for treatment) the same day. We were glad to finally find out what the cause of her severe head pain was from, but now we're so worried because she's out of the hospital and not being treated in any way for the menningitis. She just went to another hospital to see if she can get help.
