Does any of you had a shut in the brain? How complicated is it to have one? and how difficult is it to manage life long? because I believe it will be there for life once put. Looking at my brother in law's latest CT scan his Neuro Surgeon is in the opinion of putting a shunt as he finds the patient drowsy. But we want o avoid it and have multiple opinions before taking a decision as we are worried about another surgery and the repercussions. So I wanted to ask your experiences as well. Pls share your experience if anyone has undergone a shunt installation in brain.
