hi, my daughter has had a shunt(programmable one) since she is 5 mths old. she is now 12. 3 days ago she had a seizure, she hadn't a seizure before this for 3 years. she also has CP. since her seizure she is saying her neck hurts where the tube is. now, her tube has been broken for a little over a year and she is no longer using her shunt @ this time . heres my question. did she have this seizure because of her shunt not working or something? and what does it mean that her tube is bothering her since her seizure? she cannot communicate well. its alot of guesssing w her. also will this tube replacing of the shunt be a big surgery? a painful one?
