Hi, in 2002 I had sinusitis with a very rare side effect, orbital cellulitis which gave me a big blood clot on my brain. I wasn't too well as you can imagine. Anyway, I ended up with Hydrocephalus so got a LP shunt - works a treat! I have also been left with the most dreadful headaches (now controlled). I also used to Blackout 3 to 4 times a day. This has been more or less stopped now due to stopping working.
My question is... With the LP Shunt I've been told I can't go above 1200 metres. But my son is moving to Chamonix and I want to be able to visit. What would happen if I went higher than 1200 metres? My husband jokes that I'd explode! Any advise.....thank you in advance.
