I'm almost 19 years old. I've had hydrocephalus since birth and had numerous surgeries since then. I've been treated at Children's Memorial Hospital in Chicago Illinois..... Here's my dilemma... I can only be treated there until literally my 25th birthday. I know that's still almost 6 years away, but it still scares the daylights out of me! I've researched some neurosurgeons at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, which treats adults as well as children, but I'm still afraid.... Another thing I'm afraid of is that my fear of this will prevent me from seeking out treatment when I'm older... As most of you know, having untreated hydrocephalus means death... and a very painful, slow death at that..... HELP ME!
