  • Question: My husband has communicating hydrocephalus and has had 5 shunt revisions in six weeks. He has a tube leading from the shunt to his belly and the CSF is not being absorbed by his belly so it is leaking through the skin in the belly. Where else can his doctor put the tubing so that the CSF can be absorbed?

    It could be time for a second opinion from another neurosurgeon, if the current one is not communicating with you satisfactorily.
