Default Weight-lifting and exercise with shunt

Ive had a shunt since birth. I'm 42 years old. I've had a couple of revisions. My question is this: Is weight-lifting dangerous? I'm not planning on bulking up, but I always wondered about the straining of the muscles and the possible stress on the tube itself. Just wondered if anyone had any experience there.

I've often wondered the same thing, let me know what you find out... since I am ready to get back into the gym. I've weight lifted (lightly) and it caused me some discomfort. I am somewhat of a weakling, I think stenuous weight lifting maybe could cause some issue,

My 21 year old son has been shunted since shortly after birth. He exercises daily. He does both aerobic and weight lifting. While he was in school he tool weightlifting classes. He was able to keep up with the routines and has continued weightlifting at the gym. He has been fairly active for the last few years and fortunately never had any problems associated to his exercising. In any case, if you have not been active for a while, it is always smart to start slow and build up your routines gradually.
