My daughter and I offer no medical advice... only personal experiences and advice from a child who has a VP shunt and through the eyes of a mother. We offer a "sounding board", love, hope, compassion, encouragement and comfort; a shoulder to cry on and ears to listen.
If you, or a loved one, is facing shunt placement, we encourage you to GET INFORMED! Establish a good rapport with your family doctor and neurosurgeon. Ask questions! Have no regrets.
