hat develops after birth, caused by a factor
I am 69 yrs old and have been diagnosed with NPH. It all started 21 months ago, I have had a MRI a cisternagram, and 3 lumbar punctures, the first no difference, the second, a 2 day relief and the third i had only 1 day relief. The neuro surgeon said that the 3rd lumbar puncture was going to be the deciding factor, but i had relief but he said it was not enough, he said the I should have had a 3-4 day normalcy, so he is sending me back to the neurologist, i am confused. We saw the fluid in the brain, but he does not want to do a shunt. He would not give me a reason why, i have had this fluid up there a minimum of 21 months and I know that it causes brain deterioration. i want to get back to normal if I can, Thank you for your reply in advance.
My husband had shunt surgery Sept. 29th. 2016-he is 76-he had all therapy afterwards, but his walking is not good. He uses a walker only with me around. Is afraid of falling, but is very strong. Should I contact the neurosurgeon about problem?
Yes I am a novice care giver. It could something different, It could be the wrong shunt or malfunctioning one. Get a second opinion
I am 44 and just last week was told I had “water on my brain”. I have headaches, blurred vision, balance issues, cant sleep, among a few other symptoms, however my Dr kind of blew it off. I started to ask a lot of questions which he couldn’t really seem to answer and therefore said that he would refer me to a neurologists just to put me at ease but that the fluid I had was normal and nothing to worry about. Please help! How do I pursue this without letting it go on for months?
