Does anyone of you have a shunt and if so have you had problems with a blocked shunt? Have your docs given you tips on how to keep the shunt unblocked?
Since '96, I had a shunt installed and it worked brilliantly up until 2005 where I had another op, this op was on my back. I had a cyst which I wouldn't be too surprised if it was linked to my original brain tumour. I have heard that beg ing tumours are likely to spread. And even though I had a cyst in my back, docs say a cyst is equivalent to a tumour.
Anyway, surgeons made a right cock up during the back op. A simple operation and they somehow yank my shunt out of place. So of course I had to have a replacement shunt and since 2005 I've had probs. had another op in 2006 and 08 and two in 2010. All has been OK since then, hopefully no more either.
So any suggestions or advice on the shunt would be great, thanks :).
