NPH (normal pressure hydrocephalus)
My husband had a note from an interventional radiologist in Dec that he had enlarged ventricles – our neurologist had some consulting – but thought he was within the normal range. In Feb. he had a open AAA surgery – in April, he had a nasty fall with a concussion – has had gait and mobility problems ever since. Now a neurosurgeon suspects he has NPH (fortunately not Parkinsons). On Fri. we have a MRI with a flow study.
A shunt is the usual solution. Any words of wisdom? Am very concerned about more trauma to him – he doesn’t have incontinence or dementia. It would be fabulous if he could walk and drive again.
Many thanks for any help you, all can give.
