Hello everyone,
My boyfriend's mother is 69 years old. She was diagnosed tuberculous meningitis with hydrocephalus and an appearance of brain atrophy in June, 2008. After two months' treatment in hospital she got better, but was still in semiconsciousness. At the end of August, the disease repeated. She often stayed in coma, fecal and urinary incontinence, and could not take care of herself. Doctors in the neurology department diagnosed as communication hydrocephalus, brain atrophy, and subretinal space adhesion. They said it was so hard to cure; even if it was cured, there must be paralysis. The whole family were frustrated. We got her back home in October.
I wonder if there is any other treatment that can be effective on this? I can see little hope now. Thanks for any suggestion!
