In brief: Mainly headaches

There are a many symptoms that a person can feel if a VP shunt is not draining fluid properly or "underdraining" though many of these symptoms can occur in both under as well as "overdraining" so one really doesn't know exactly which situation they're in from a clinical perspective.
I could supply much more information to you if you can send me more details. Write to: www.healthtap.com/drsaghafi
