The cold weather has been making my shunt and head hurt this weekend and last week during the ice storm. Today, there's been an improvement, the pain medication is working, there were a few days like last weekend when nothing was working on the pain.
Also, this week I wrote to the board of neurosurgeons inquiring about what things were being done to prevent mistakes in the operating room and ways to monitor when a cerebral shunt will stop working.
I had used my experiences in 2009 and 2014 as examples of what needs to be improved.
We'll see if and when I hear back from them....
