Not even sure I should be doing this but have read the posts and they are really helpful.
My mam has just been diagnosed with Alzheimer's and Vascular dementia which they think has been happening for 3 to 4 years. She still knows who we all are but her body seems to be failing quicker than her mind. Big blow was consultant informed us on Friday that on top of this she also has Hydrocepalus which is the fluid from the spine leaking to the qtr of the brain that is still ok. They won't do the opp as they think it won't work because of age complications etc and mam doesn't want the opp also. Anybody know anything more about this?? Still in shock at min.

So confused:(
Sorry you haven't had any replies specifically about hydrocephalus, JLM, but I don't remember seeing any mention on here before. Maybe someone will see your thread who has some experience.
Could you perhaps ring the consultant's secretary and explain that you would like more information?
Meanwhile, welcome.
