So we have the follow up MRI scheduled for June 11th to find out if the setting adjustment has worked to minimize or get rid of the subdural hematoma. Little Man had an appointment with the neurosurgeon office last week and since he is showing behavioral symptoms or shunt malfunction but there hasn’t/isn’t a malfunction they want him to see a neurologist. I kind of thought the office was one in the same but apparently the office visits we’ve been to are just neurosurgeon visits. Anyway, we got an appointment with a neurologist scheduled but we had to first schedule an EEG to be done before the neurologist will see him.
What on earth do I expect for an EEG for an hour for my 16 month old? It’s scheduled during his normal nap time which they said is a good thing. But if he’s all hooked up to wires I don’t think he’s going to go to sleep as easily as normal if at all. They said it will last an hour but is that in the door and out an hour later or is that the time for the test itself? I have a million questions I want to know.
Has anyone else been through this? Any advice or help with what I can expect?
