Shunt is going to be for long.. And will need to be revised as the child grow older. Because of prematurity and stormy course during first year of life baby had developed some behavioral and language issues that also need to be taken care of. So be in touch with Child developmental Specialist too . ( Dr Monica Juneja @ MAMC, lok nayak hospital is very good,,, it being a govt medical college, so it is free of cost too). you can also like and follow my facebook page for updates regarding general health issues of children. https://www.facebook.com/mayaclinic.in Website: http://mayaclinic.in/wpsite/
