This is Dr. David

your neurosurgeons were not able to drain the cyst?

how large is the arachnoid cyst?

where is the location of it?

fenestration really just mean draining the cyst to let the fluid out.

is the cyst putting pressure on your brain?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
My Cyst had erupted. The fluid is down the left side of my brain. The axis of my brain is also off centre. I have days of nausea, walking has slowed down,sometimes feel pressure on my left side and behind my left eye. Word association is not always good. Tiredness is another symptom. Having continualCT scans and then consultations. I have been told it can take 2years?
