Hello all, I have one question to ask.. Today i go for medical check up. The doctor saw my catheter inside my brain and he said it is dangerous which one day will rupture. But refer to the specialist doctor who was treat me, there are nothing to be worried.. I can whether left it inside or remove it if i'm ready. I decide to just let it be since it will not cause anything bad. Any opinion/suggestion about this?

Hi Azwa,

Can you get a second opinion from a different specialist? If not, I would trust your regular specialist's opinion. Often an operation to remove "hardware" is more dangerous than just leaving it in place. You can ask the specialist if that's the case with your catheter.


Thank you JH. Yes i do think just like your opinion. Better just left it there. Will ask for confirmation from my specialist because he knows better...
