Hi XXXXXXX,

Thank you for posting your query.

It is unfortunate that your sister is still in coma, even after two surgeries.

If the shunt is not working properly, then a repeat surgery is required. In this case, they would remove the dysfunctional shunt, and put a new shunt.

Has the biopsy report of the tumor come?

Please get back if you have any more queries.

Best wishes,
