Flying with an adjustable strata valve

Hi, I am looking to fly on an aeroplane this year I have a adjustable strata valve in place since January 08, I've had 2 children since ( both by c-sec on doctors advice cause of the pressure of pushing) but I was wondering if I would be able to fly?
I know all about the airport scanners but was wondering if anyone has experienced headaches or pains during the whole flying process?? Thanks 4 reading this and hope to hear back from you all soon

Hi there!

Though there is no absolute contraindication of flying with hydrocephalus; a few people may experience increased discomfort/ headaches with ill-adjusted pressures. It is best advised to consider a review with your treating neurologist before planning to make the trip.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
