After reading many posts I feel very blessed to have lived a basically normal life in spite of my hydrocephalus. I had five revisions by age five due to growth. One at eight, eleven, fourteen, seventeen. Had begun to function normally without shunt for six months. I had two revisions within a two week period at 19. I have had no problems with shunt since, and I'm now 32. My dr is hopeful that this shunt shouldn't need replacement. One of the posts asked about shunt affecting pregnancy. That was something I hadn't given much thought, but made me curious. I hope to have a family one day. I'm glad to have a place to talk.
