Hi, I had an adjustable LP shunt fitted in December 2010. It's working just fine but I've been backwards and forwards to neurosurgeon since then because I either have low pressure symptoms or high pressure. A couple of months ago I was suffering from low pressure symptoms so it was adjusted, papilledema came back so 2 weeks ago it was adjusted again. Now I have quite severe low pressure symptoms, fortunately I work from home a lot and have a sympathetic employer so if it gets too much I can go and lie down. The neurosurgeon says drink a lot, well yes I'm doing that, but this isn't "normal" life but do I have to adjust to this being my new normal?
