Welcome to the group! I'm so glad you've found us! So sorry to hear about all that you have been through with your IIH and that they have not been able to do more to help you, and to save your eyesight. Like Wylee, I'm wondering if a shunt has been considered in your case? *big hugs* I have a daughter just a couple of years older than yours, so I can relate to the challenge you face in dealing with all of this and raising a little one. I look forward to getting to know you better!
