Cyst blocking ventricles

Five years ago I had a an AVM removed from the front right lobe. Now I have
been diagnosed as having a cyst applying pressure to the four ventricles in
what appears to be the center of my brain. I have heard I can have this
liquid removed and a shunt placed there---the Doctor said normally there is
a septum that is close together, mine is being spread apart by the cyst. I
have also heard that I may have to have a catheter drain? Can anyone
elaborate on these?
