When Mom started having dementia problems we got her started with a thorough workup at the large university Memory and Brain Wellness center near us. It has been a long process, but we finally got the result last week. The MRI shows enlarged brain ventricles, and that along with the neurocognitive tests and the fact that her walking problems started along with her memory problems have resulted in this diagnosis. I walked into the appointment expecting a diagnosis of vascular dementia (maybe mixed with Alzheimers). And I thought I would be told there wasn't much we could do. To find out she has a condition that may be treatable is blowing my mind - in a good way. So I have been busy doing research. This site has a good write-up on NPH, and I've read some other threads. But with all the reading I've done here I hadn't seen anybody else refer to this diagnosis before, until I searched for it. We will be seeing a hydrocephalus specialist soon and I know there are a lot of steps to be taken before a decision is made to do anything. Has anybody else had their loved one receive this diagnosis? Has anybody gone through the spinal tap test, or had the shunt put in? What were your experiences. I'm reading the statistics, etc., but I would love to hear some first hand accounts - good or bad. And thanks to this forum for making sure we moved ahead with a thorough work-up with specialists when Mom developed her problems. I doubt it would have been diagnosed without the complete work-up!
