Post concussion


   My 14 yr old son had concussion in sept 07 w/  headache & visual, memory, thinking ability disturbance for a few hours after the injury. A CT scan revealed no bleeding. He has continued w/ fatigue and headache w/ feeling of pressure behind eyes.  In Dec a follow-up CT essentially normal,  tho mentions ventricles are enlarged but w/in the midline.  Is this finding insignificant or could enlarged ventricles (even tho they are within the midline) be the reason for his ongoing symptoms & should be followed up?

Not all brain injuries show up on CT scans.  If your son has demonstrable symptoms, I would seek evaluation and treatment from specialists such as neuropsychologist, speech & language, and occupational therapy.  Most states also provide services within the public school system.
