Could you please post back at let us know if your baby is having a "shunt" operation done and if not, what type of operation is your baby having? With a little more info we can research information for you. Thanks! Ask the doctors and nurses, they are there to give you information as much as look after the baby. If you don't understand what they are telling you ask them to repeat it. You have to sign the consent and look after your baby afterwards so you need to know (and are entitled to know) everything. I hope all goes well.
