My Shunt’s Daily Activities, Part IV

Dear Programmable Shunt Valve,

I hate you, because you cause me pain. I’d like my old shunt back. I’d also like the brain I had before the multiple brain injuries I had.

Thank you.

I know one thing for sure, my programmable shunt valve reacts to the weather and causes scalp and nerve pain. I also know it responds to the slit ventricle syndrome I acquired between 2009-2014.  I can feel when csf fluid is being pushed through the valve. It could be because of the resistance level ( level 11 ) which is considered high, however it’s what I needed as a lower level ( 8, 10 ) caused my head to bob up and down involuntarily and I could feel explosions going off in my skull.

So we’ll see what happens….
