Hello, it is possible to have TB infection more than once, though not common. The most important factor is that the infection has been fully treated with antiboitics. In many cases these antibiotics need to be take for up to one year.

Whether a shunt is removed or not is based on the individuals condition and sometime to discuss with the doctors.

Best wishes, Claire
