My son was told his headaches were long Covid but it was much worse – I knew it was serious

A TEEN’S headaches were repeatedly misdiagnosed as long Covid before doctors found a brain tumour. 

Kane Allcock, 15, had been in agony, was sick and struggled to walk with dizziness when the migraines began getting worse.

But he had only been given pain-killers for them, which started when he caught the virus, and medics repeatedly insisted he was suffering from post-Covid vertigo.

Doctors only found the large tumour after he had a seizure and eventually sent him for a brain scan. Seven-and-a-half hour surgery finally removed it almost four months after the headaches began.

Mum Nicki, of Crewe, Cheshire, said:  “I knew something wasn’t right. Kane was holding his head and rocking in agony. He couldn’t walk properly.

“The message I was getting was that he was still just suffering from migraines.”

Budding footballer Kane first got the headaches after catching Covid on New Year's Eve.

He felt unwell and went straight to bed when he arrived for a tournament in April..

They were again told it was just a headache after blood tests and he was put on codeine.

But doctors then diagnosed him with a build-up of pressure on the brain and found a large tumour after Nicki lost her patience with the professionals.

She had taken him to A&E with husband Steve and decided they would admit him for overnight tests. She also told a nurse she had noticed a dent in the back of his head.

He had the seizure the next day and was sent in for an MRI scan. It found acute hydrocephalus - a build-up of pressure on the brain caused by CSF - and the brain tumour.

Kane was rushed to Alder Hey Hospital in Liverpool for life-saving treatment.

Mum-of-two Nicki said the car journey following him was the "longest 50 minutes of our lives".

Kane was quickly taken for an operation to treat the hydrocephalus and had surgery to remove the whole tumour two days later.

His histology report confirmed the tumour was a low-grade (non-cancerous pilocytic astrocytoma.

He was given the all-clear after further surgery and was discharged four days after the operation.

But he was taken back to hospital for stiches when he had a wound leak.

The leak continued and he went back into surgery to re-stitch the wound.

And he had to have a spinal drain inserted when his hydrocephalus flared up again, which meant lying flat for five days before it was finally removed in May.

Kane's parents stayed in free accommodation next to the hospital and were put up by charity Ronald McDonald House.

Philippa Bradbury, regional community fundraiser at the charity, said: “It is our pleasure to be able to support families like the Allcocks, helping to ease the financial and emotional burden of having a sick child in hospital."
