Patient Comments: Hydrocephalus - Causes

What was the cause of your hydrocephalus?

Comment from: Keith, 55-64 Male (Patient) Published: May 07

I have all the symptoms of hydrocephalus. Doctors over the years have come up with bipolar, lupus, thyroid problems – all as a possible reason. They did find that I have a tumor of the choroid plexus. If it wasn't for my dogs, I would have given up. The mental torture and pain is incredible. Doctors that don't understand hydrocephalus kick you under the bus.
