    Default Looking for 2nd opinion - CSF issue after hemmorhage

    My cousin suffered a brain hemmorhage 6 months ago. Since then, she has had several surgeries for an (unrelated) chiari malformation and to deal with ongoing swelling/blockages in the ventricles. She had a shunt placed in early February but has had ongoing issues with CSF drainage. Currently, she suffers from double vision, nausea and loss of balance.

    They have proposed a second shunt in the 4th ventricle but have held off due to a very high failure rate and risk of further damage/complications.

    We are looking for a 2nd opinion from a neurosurgeon that specializes in CSF issues. We live in the Northeast any could travel anywhere within reason. Can anyone help?

    Thank you in advance.
