Default pain in shunt when leaning forward

Hi there all
i have never posted on any of these forums before but thought I would lean on your wealth of knowledge regarding shunts etc.
My 12 year old has a vp shunt ( last revision 2 years ago ) and then was added in a anti siphon device due to over drainage .
Last week she got hit hard on the head with a netball shunt side . She seemed fine after it albeit had a mild headache. Sine then she has had a headache only on bending forward but otherwise completely well ( unlike other shunt blocks etc where she has been very poorly) .
Any suggestions? If anyone else has experienced this symptom.
Thanks in advance

I have no direct experience with this but curious if things are clearing up or if there is something like a kink in her system somehow. I send email to our surgeon if something is weird but talk to on call doc if something is pressing. Pretty sure your doc would want a few things checked out. Please let people know how things go!
