Hello. Thank you for your post.
Hydrocephalus is also called, water on the brain. When extra fluid puts pressure on the brain it can cause brain damage. It's most common in infants and older adults.
Hydrocephalus is characterized by head enlargement in infants. Adults and older children experience headaches, impaired vision, cognitive difficulties, loss of coordination, and incontinence.
Treatment is often a tube (shunt) inserted surgically into a ventricle to drain excess fluid.
I strongly recommend he follow up with any recommendations and/or treatments his doctor has advised. His doctor is the one that knows his health information and condition (specifically) so you really need to talk to him or her about your husband's condition moving forward.
