I went to see another neurosurgeon today to get a second opinion regarding treatment for my shunt issues since July. He said the same thing my surgeon said in the sense that he doesn't question what another doctor does.
He did mention if he were to do surgery he would change out the catheter which runs from my neck into my stomach. He also said he would've done an abdominal CT scan since I've been having so many issues in my abdomen and stomach. The only other option now is surgery and a new shunt valve to see if this resolves anything. Hopefully this means I won't be in pain again after next week as I expect to have surgery soon.
