Back Surgery

I had back surgery on April 23, it was a redo to repair disk at L 4/5. It turned into a nightmare. I kept having severe headaches in the following days. My Dr. Ordered cat scan which showed nothing, then he ordered MRI. MRI showed blood clot and tear in my dura. I was taken back to surgery the following morning. I haven't been able to pee since April 23. I am very weak on the left side of my body.
