I was operated for hydrocephalus and after complete recovery I had alcohol ( about half a mug of beer). Post this, I started getting problems that I used to face earlier. The constant hydrocephalus hangover persists. Is there a problem or will it fade away as soon as the alcohol is removed from my body? My shunt is working fine and CT scan shows no damage. Please provide remedies to cure this condition.
