Hello again Dr.John.I had a VP shunt fitted on Nov 25th 08 for IIH with papillodema.Unfortunatly, there has been little improvment in headaches and Paps. When I lastsaw my Ophthalmologist, two weeks ago, he told me that the paps were the same but there was an improvment in the blood vessels supplying the eyes.ie, they were "less curly".
My question is , should there be more of an improvment by now? My drs, are slow to share any information with me but it has been suggested that they want to do a LP shunt in the near future. I still have blurry vision and regular field tests have shown the loss of some degree of peripheral vision. I had been hoping for a better result from the surgery but is a matter of more time and a little bit more patience? Thanking you in advance, Cath 278.
PS. You were so helpful to me last year and helped my drs to finally come to a diagnosis!.
