my 2yo's pediatrician just told us that he may have hydrocephalus because his head grew more than usual. Has anyone ever gone through that?

  • Yes, my cousin was born with hydrocephalus and the doctors put a shunt in. He's all grown up, married, and doing very well now.

  • My son has hydrocephalus and was diagnosed at 6 months of age. He also has a shunt and other than the occasions when he has an issue with the shunt he is completely normal. 2 years old and showing it!
