My daughter had a VP shunt placed when she was 16 months old as a result of hydrocephalus.
She is now 10 years old and as far as i can remeber she has had head aches since she was really little.
Recently she has complained that her shunt has moved around to the front of her neck which as well as being uncomfortable also makes her feels sick causing her to gag.
She has had scans that comfirm that the shunt is working and we have been told they will not operate if its just a problem of discomfort.
We are awaitng a appointment in the uk ( we currently live in Germany ) at Southampton where she was treated to see what they say. If anyone has had a problem where there shunt has moved and caused them problems please write back Thank you
