Can anyone with a shunt (preferably vp shunt) feel it move if they jolt their head?

      My last shunt revision was 15 years ago. It was hard because they had to move it to the other side of my head. Because every time I would move my head the shunt would rub a nerve and aggravate it.

      Yes!! And it hurts! I’ve had a shunt since I was one. I’m almost 47. I’m having head pains right now I’ve has 2 malfunctions so far and have lost over85% of my vision. Hydrocephalus lifetime chore!
