Probable NPH...new & frightening frontier

I was diagnosed with NPH in 2011
I had a shunt installed at the Jacksonville
Mayo facility in November 2011. My symptom was the inability to walk it took a few months and an adjustment before I improved to the point where I no longer needed a walker. I had no adverse side effects
My walking has recently deteriorated and I have an appointment with a neurosurgeon in Melbourne Florida who has the capability of adjusting my shunt
I’m hoping He can adjust the shunt and my walking improves

Hello @gldaniel and welcome to Mayo Connect and this discussion on NPH. I'm glad to hear that the shunt was helpful to you and that it can be adjusted now. I'm sure you are looking forward to this adjustment.

As you are comfortable sharing, could you speak a little as to any injuries that might have led to the NPH? Did it take very long to get a diagnosis? Is this upcoming adjustment a surgical procedure?

I look forward to hearing from you again.
