kidney stone..spinal..major pain from that spot to the top of my head

Resolved Question:

I had kidney stone surgery to get stones and put in stints. They used a spinal for sedation
now I am having major pain from that spot to the top of my head.
What should I do? I have been lying flat on my back and taking percocet every 4 to 6 hrs.
It's not getting better.

Dear customer,

Most spinal headaches require no treatment and resolve by own.You should drink more of water and if it is not releived then consult the doctor for further management.

The treatment in some cases may be use of epidural blood patch, epidural saline and intravenous caffeine.
