Default is this normal for hydrocephalus

Dear Taneisha,

Symptoms may vary between children and adults who suffer from hydrocephalus. However, previous to the past two surgeries which I have had,*nothing abnormal showed up on*the CT scan, nor the shunt series or the shuntogram. The neurosurgeon had to change the valve in both surgeries because they were simply not convenient for me.

What I suggest is to observe your son's symptoms closely because shunt complications may sometimes only appear during a surgery. Also, part of the shunt system may not react properly with the patient while it seems to be functionning.

I hope your son's health improves. I send lots of strength!
