Hydrocephalus VP Shunt
Hi all not sure whether anyone can shed any light on this matter. I had a shunt fitted at the age of 2. I am very lucky and have had no serious issues to date. For the past couple of years I have been suffering with stomach pain, starts as a niggle and then the pain increases and sometime gets so bad that i cannot stand up straight. It only lasts for a few hours. It sometimes feels like something tearing and also a deep pain and when press on the area aggravates the pain. I have been checked over for appendictis, gall stones, shunt apparentely is working fine. So it is a mystery. The pain continues but not as bad as it was last August when i had to go a and e. I was referred to someone at southend but that was in case it could be stomach troubles and they said it could be scar tissue issues on my stomach where it has thickened over the years but still unsure. I just wondered whether anyone has had anything similar to this? Thanks.
