My Dad has Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus. He is 77 years old. He had a shunt implanted in early March 2007. Two days after the shunt was put in, he began to vomit. The vomiting has continued, on average, about every 5 or 6 days. He may vomit once or twice in the day. He takes Zophram and this usually takes care of it but this is certainly not normal. He has had a CAT scan and was told by the neurosurgeon that the shunt is functioning normally. Has anyone had any experience with this symptom following having a shunt implanted? Any info would be appreciated
