I'm curious as I've known 2 women with same.

Both she and the other woman now have a shunt in the spinal cord near base of spine to drain the fluid safely (although they do have to go for regular checks)
ive got a shunt installed into the middle of my brain, which then attaches to a pump. That then drains the excess fluid in a tube which goes out the usual way
yeah i have to have scans and checks every so often too. the worst part id say is the mental break down i had just few short months ago, god that was pure hell indeed.
