has anyone had to go back into brain surgery after they already had the original brain surgery? i had the shuntogram and apparently my neurologist saw something in it that prompted them to send my results to my neurosurgeon which they've never done before. they want him to look at it and make the decision if he wants to go back in to fix what the problem is even though they won't tell me what the problem is. when i saw the shuntogram it appeared there was a huge kink in the tubing but they won't confirm or deny that fact. has anyone else had to have it redone. what was their experience from it. was it harder or easier to recover from it the second time?
Here we are again, with older question not answered. I personally would not let anyone operate on me especially the brain area until a full explanation is given to you about what , why, where, & when. The mai question being is this something that was caused or happened with the first surgery? Sounds like someone may have made a mistake, & is covering their a$$es to me. That's just my opinion, but as a patient you have every right before a surgery to know evey fact . Just my thoughts. Please post & let us know what you decided & what has taken place...
