July 9th having second decompression

Has anyone else had brain slumping? I am having a second decompression this week t just curious if anyone has ever gone through this. I hope everyone had a great 4th of July.

Hi interested to find out more about what’s happened to you. I’ve had ongoing problems since my decompression 20 months ago. I had an icp bolt inserted 12 months ago and it showed icp was -4 whilst o was standing. Neuro surgeon said he could do a second op to place a ‘net’ to prevent I assume what U describe as slumping but he said it was to dangerous to do. Another year on and Im still in a lot of pain, which is worse when I go from lying to standing and I vommited daily and feel nauseous all the time. Does any of this sound familiar? Hope ur second surgery was successful x
