    Hello,
    I was diagnosed with right side obstructive hydrocephalus in late May 2016. I underwent laparoscopic brain surgery in June 2016. In this procedure the neurosurgeon went down to the center of my brain and punctured a hole in the membrane that divides the hemispheres of the brain in hopes to drain the fluid without shunt placement. In August 2016 I had an MRI that showed I still have a moderate amount of fluid in my brain and have sustained permanent brain damage from the fluid. I am seeking information on many different subjects. I have never had a head injury or meningitis and do not know the origin of my hydrocephalus. I would like information on stem cell research, if a shunt would help me at this point and other treatment options. This is so very new to me, I have been told I should no longer work. I was an occupational therapy assistant for over 20 years prior to this. Any information or advise would be greatly appreciated!
    Sincerely,
    Erin Bakke
