If something hits my shunt can it make it fail?

Just curious if something hit it directly could cause a shunt malfunction. I have hydrocephulus and a VP shunt.

    Idk I'm curious about this too...I have a vp shunt and actually hit it on the bottom of my bed about two days ago (stupid I know),but my head still hurts a lot and my ears do too... I'm really paranoid that I dislodged it but I would think that if I did I would know..hopefully a doctor comes around to answer..hahaha
