Cisternogram: If they are going to stick a needle thru your meninges there is always a chance of a leak. I would ask you sticker how many folks he or she has stuck that have developed a leak? Likely very rare. Then you and your team can weight the risks and benefits of doing it or not an then you can decide what you want to do.
