Surgery to stop brain fluid leak saved young mother's life.

A mother-of-three is lucky to be alive after doctors failed to diagnose that the clear liquid streaming from her nose was a brain fluid leak.

Aundrea Aragon, 35, made several trips to her doctor over a four-month period but was sent home with nasal sprays after being told it was simply allergies.

Mrs Aragon finally discovered something was seriously wrong last month after being forced to go to the emergency room with liquid pouring from her nose. She was diagnosed with a cerebrospinal fluid leak from two cracks in the back of her sphenoid sinus, a potentially fatal condition.
