How are shunt problems treated?
Shunt blockages which are causing illness usually require an operation to replace or adjust the affected part of the shunt. Shunt infections are usually treated by removal of the whole shunt and a course of antibiotics before insertion of a new system. Modern approaches to antibiotic therapy mean that such treatment can be expected to succeed, in most cases.

I was still having contractions I could feel and see them on the monitor it was all coming back again all I could think was how on earth could I cope but it did not sure if it was Adeline or he drugs.
Round day 7 of having Alfie home, I felt an overwhelming loneliness I know this is a bit odd, but at the time was not sure what was going on.
I am very lucky to say I have two amazing kids and a supportive partner and good friends and family around.
Now after I am very keen on helping others to raise more awareness around premature births also going into my local special care baby unit to give others a helping hand giving lots of goodies for the unit & for other mummy and daddies.
Love giving back to others and putting a smile on other peoples faces. Also try and do bits for Bliss when I can.
