Astrocytoma and vp shunt

Hi! I am a 42 year old woman, a single mum of one exceptionally supportive 16 year old. Last year is a blur for me from September onwards. I had a brain bleed, debulking of tumor (60%), meningitis, two embolisms, a pacemaker with wandering wires which had to be fixed, an omaya reservoir, ICP of over 70, a vp shunt and two days before Christmas the scar on head over the valve opened and resulted in shunt number 2. I would really like to chat with anyone who has a vp shunt. Doing well now by the way... Just feeling a little alone and keen to know others are out there! Lily in the Blue Mountains
