So, I got it done Sunday and well, the pain sucked until wed when I went back in to get a blood patch, it stopped and a little over 30 hours the headache came back but it was bearable unlike the first time I mean I couldn’t stand without vomiting. This time it hurts but I can stand and not puke. My question is, how long is it usually until a Spinal Tap heals? I’m about to leave on vacation next Sunday June 2nd to Florida and I have a 17 hour drive. I do not want to have this horrible pain and not enjoy the anyting there. Should I be good by than? I have a 0 history of headaches. I’m a 24 old male. Should’ve never had a spinal tap done
Spinal tap headaches and when do they usually heal after the procedure is done?

I can't answer your question as I'm coming up to day 4 of recovery. I'm hoping you've healed fine and am wondering how long it took for you to feel better. I feel like my pain increased over the past couple of days. I went to the ER last night due to stiffening neck pain. My nurse told me about how a blood patch can help but I never got one. Apparently, some women feel this way after an epidural, I didn't though.
