Me AGAIN!! Sorry about all these questions I keep asking, but Im new to all this shunt business so I need some guidance and re-assurance.
Was wondering if it was normal to have quite a swollen tummy around where the shunt was inserted? I had the operation on 19 Dec, so its not been two weeks yet, but my stomach is still pretty swollen since the operation. I can't get any jeans or normal trousers on - only joggers! (my new year outfit is going to look amazing, isnt it!??)
I know its still early days so Im sure the swelling is fine, but I just wanted to check it was normal. As how do I know if its still just swelling from the operation or perhaps something more serious like the fluid collecting in my stomch and not draining away properly.
