ANother Lumbar puncture and another surgery!

This morning I had a lumbar puncture. They decided to do this rather than the ICP bolt due to my still low immune system. A little hole in the back is nothing compared to a hole through the skull! Pressure showed up at 35, it should be no higher than 20. They drained me down to 11 and I feel great now =D
I have just seen my neurosurgical registrar who informed me that 35 is too high and I shall need to be shunted. He has gone to speak to my consultant and they are going to get back to me, when I don't know but it should be later on today. Brain surgery again, more hair gone. Oh this is fun =D
