Default colloid cyst..new member with questions

Hi I am a new member, I joined because my daughter 24 collapsed in A&E dep. two weeks ago. she had suffered from headache for more than 18 months, was diagnosed as migrine, on that day the pain was severe, she ended up in the A&E but collapsed two hours after admition. she went un concoius for 50 mintues ( until operated on) according to the records, was taken to a scan, that showed a colloid syst blocking the csf flow, then had an external tubing installed to relief the pressure. Her brain has suffered damage, the neuro surgents can not tell how much damage from the scan, she has had a shunt now but still quit disabled. Can anybody help me of similar case where the patient has recovered and what to expect.
I am sorry I do not know how to start a new thread.
