My husband has been diagnosed with Cerebral Brain Atrophy. He was diagnosed at Mayo Clinic. He was given 3 to 4 years to live. At that time he was walking with no problems. It effects the balance and speech, and swallowing . He is now in his 4th year. He is wheelchair bound and has more trouble with swallowing. The doctor at Mayo said he would probably die of
Aspiration pneumonia as he has trouble swallowing.
I am so sorry about your son. My husband is 79 and at least this did not happen while he had a job and child in college. We are very grateful for that!
Please keep me informed. We have only found one other person who has this and she is in South Africa. I wrote to Colleen why there weren't more with this diagnosis and she said that it's very rare.
