How are you? Ventriculoperitoneal shunting or VP shunting is surgery to relieve increased pressure inside the skull which is caused by excess cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) on the brain. Shunt placement is usually successful in reducing pressure in the brain. But if there are other conditions present such as spina bifida, brain tumor, meningitis, encephalitis, or hemorrhage, these conditions could affect the outcome. Have this checked by your doctor for proper evaluation. Take care and do keep us posted.
I was born with an arachnoid cyst on the back of my brain and had two shunts put in. I suffered for four years with all the hospitals and docs all treating me like crap like I was a liar or an addict trying to get pain meds. Ask your doc if he or she could do a ct of your brain and then later do another one and compare them. I toook old cts fro 2009 to my new doc and he did a new ct and saw that fluid was slowly building up over 4 years causeing altered state of mind, severe nausea,and constant pressure and headaches that I couldn't stand. With the iold films he found the issue and I had a 3rd shunt put in and the pressure is now gone. The pressure made my eyes hurt so bad I wanted them removed
