    Default Scared.... I have hydro with VP shunt and I'm Pregnant..

    Yes complete shock because I am panhypopituitary but a change in my meds surged ovulation obviously... I'm a in my 40's and have read things about women needing shunt revisions because of hydro. Does anyone have any experience with this... I'm freaking out. Not only because of the shunt but how do I tell my husband. We obviously weren't trying to restart our lives with babies and such. Our daughter is in University ... big distance between siblings ... Thanks for any input.
