Can you guys tell me about the ICP monitoring. This is MY option to make sure the shunt will work for my headaches as I can not take diamox or any sulfa drugs. My dr's do not want to try the octreotide due to the severe reactions I have to a lot of meds. I am afraid to do the shunt from what I have read. I don't know how long I can live with these headaches though. The surgeon(Dr. House) says we have enough evidence to do the shunt. Does the ICP monitor hurt? Are you able to do stuff while in the hospital? Are you just on a medical floor? Any info would be appreciated!
