Questions about condition.
My nephew was born two months premature and had a grade III brain bleed. The blood cleared and no shunt had to be put in. Doctors said they didn't think he had hydrocephalus as no blockage could be found on an ultrasound.
However, he has now had his four-month ultrasound, and it was discovered that his frontal brain ventricles are enlarged. We are looking for any answers as to why this happened, what brain damage may have occurred, and about whether or not he can still lead a normal life. We would appreciate any feedback.
