  • The surgery they are talking about is likely to place a shunt..a tube from the brain down to his abdomen so the excess fluid can drain off. It is very important not to put off treatment. As long as they can get the fluid drained the pressure on his brain will be relieved. Knowledge is power Mom. Best wishes.
