See below: JoeB: I'm not sure what your question is. Apparently you have ventricular shunt and have been having continuous headaches. Based on just 2 sentences of information it's not possible to give you meaningful advice. I suggest you obtain copies of your test results and schedule a consultation with a HT neurologist. I hope you get some relief for your headaches soon.
