I just had a programable shunt put in a little over two weeks ago. I'm 39 years old. My surgeon is not one to give out much information. Sometimes he's willing to take the time to answer question sometimes it's like pulling teeth. I was just wondering about other people who have had shunt surgeries in the last few years--were you given a packet when you left the hospital about your shunt and what to expect. Are their any web sites you go to besides this one to get information? Do you carry any sort of medical card with you that says you have a shunt? Do those of you with programable shunts have them checked after you have an MRI? Do you have an X-ray each time your shunt is adjusted? I have more questions--but I'll save those for another time.
