Lumbar Peritoneal Shunt? Anyone else got one? Whats you experience with this?

I just got one of these placed in me a week ago today. I am concerned that it wont work. I had it done because I have Benign Intracranial Hypertention AKA Pseudotumor Cerebri. It has been a week and I am still having some slight headaches and vision problems. Any ideas?

    well some headaches may be because they worked with your meninges. If you are somewhat better, I would consider that as a good sign, these things work more than not working that is why it was recommended and placed, so do let it make you nervous. I would talk to the surgeon if symptoms persist or worsen, good luck
