Letter: Hydrocephalus

I have been reading your magazine for a while now, and I have yet to see anything on hydrocephalus. I first became a subscriber when I saw Neurology Now at my neurologist's office for my migraines. I love reading all of the stories that are in the magazine, but I would like to see something on hydrocephalus. I was born 11 weeks early and had a serious bleed on my brain. As a result, I developed hydrocephalus, and I had a shunt placed shortly after birth. I have had a total of 15 brain surgeries, all due to a blockage in the shunt tubing. I am currently attending a community college, working towards my nursing degree. I have some memory problems, due, I think, to all of the operations, but I will succeed.

Thank you for the magazine and all the work that you put into it to bring these issues to the public.
