Sounds crazy i know but i had a shunt put in my head to drain spinal sfluid from the centre of my brain into my heart 2 1/2 years ago and it has never really worked as it moved and got wedged.
Surgeons in Oxford wouln't fix it saying it is too dangerous.
Hubby and I have moved to Derbyshire to be closer to my folks and get treated in sheffield as they have great rep for my condition. well had 1st appointment with the Neuro surgeon and i had a CT and xrays there and then and he agreed to operate may even be before xmas.
The move was worth it and i can't wait to get it done.
Just can't help telling everyone how excited i am!
