Hello, I have a seven year old Son Daniel with Spina bifida and Hydrochephalus, he had a shunt fitted at birth and attends a special needs school. He is a full time wheel chair user and has severe learning difficulties, but is the happiest child you could ever wish to meet.

My baby son has Spina Bifida. No hydrocephalus so not shunted. While I can't remember his lesion level I know that he is a paraplegic. He has clubbed feet and we do have to cath him regularly. If you wouldn't mind sharing your location that would be helpful thanks. Looking into getting a wheelchair for him soon. We had postnatal surgery.
