Hi Samarena, 

Tumors can recur and this is likely why you are being monitored once a year through an MRI. Although the shunt could be causing you pain or discomfort, this is something you want to ask your doctor about, just to make sure since it only started a couple of months ago, and you had surgery 2 years ago.  

Please keep us posted,
