    Side Effects (Incontinence (cannot control urine)): Since my dads last infection he is now having uncontrolled bowel and urine problems, his memory is very bad, meds for seizers are not working the way they were. His mood is different, he can't hear very well, he's not eating very well, he cant walk on his own, he is falling down and sleeps a lot. All in a few short months. He has been admitted to the Reno va today. He fell 4 times in the last 24 hrs. He is staying with his best friend because I am unable to care for him because I can't pick him up! He cant hold his head up today :( I fear my dad is loosing his fight! :( I'm scared!!!!

    Side Effects (Infection): Soon after the surgery in march my dad got a staph infection once again. He was so sick he was Holucinating and his head was swallen and puss was draining for his incision site. It took my dads brother who is a medical malpractice attorney to get the neurosurgeon to come look at my dad 2 days after being admitted! This is renown in Reno! Btw! The dr came looked at my dad and rushed him into emergency surgery!!! My dad had the mess flap removed and he stayed in the Icu for 5 days. He hasn't fully recovered to this day! This was in June of this year.

    Procedure or Surgery (Surgery): My dad had a resection march 2012 this year 8 years to the day of his first surgery! Went well at this time though my dad has lost strength physically so his recovery is very different from the beginning.
